Bottom of the feet pain, anyone? 1 yr post microdiscectomy

fatherof4ffatherof4 Posts: 11
Just wanted to vent a bit. 13 months ago I had an l4/l5 microdiscectomy that helped about 50 % or so but never really licked the sciatica. Still very difficult to put on my shoes and can't walk too far with the hip and leg pain aching agian.

BUt at this point my greatest complaint is actually my feet- the bottoms of my feet feel like they were just whacked with a board or something! If I take my shoes off, they feel a lot better, and now I go around at work kciking my shoes off whenver I can.

THe other concern is that the whole time my issues were on the left side... but the right foot is an equal offender to the left foot now. IS this a common thing among you folks as well? I can't help but think that most healing / drying up of the disc would have taken place by now, and my uninformed theory is now that I must have lost enough height that I am affecting the right side nerve root. SOund familiar to anyone?

  • I have'nt had surgery yet , hopefully I won't have to. But the bottom of my feet feel the same way. As soon as I put on shoes I get that sensation and also a wet foot sensation it drives me crazy. I put my shoes on and off all day long. When I have my shoes off they feel better. I also get this ring around my toes feeling. I see the back speacialist in the morning I hope he can do something.
  • May have the same, bottom of foot/mainly to the outside edge/worse with shoes on.

    You may try to get wider shoes, that seems to help me quite a bit if its the same.
