I've had time to heal after my surgery. It was a microdiscectomy, microlaminotomy and foraminotomy. What do surgeons consider a successful outcome? Prior to surgery, I had a numb foot. It's mostly back. I had a burning leg. and for some reason part of my right leg went a little numb. Fast forward to now and I am pain free sitting. However, remaining upright and standing brings on some sciatic pain on the side/top of the leg. And my foot starts to be uncomfortable (like pressure) as I stand and work during the day. So, what do we think is a success? What does the surgeon consider as a success?
Hope and healing, all in good time,
