In late February I had a discetomp at the L5/S1, was told by surgeon that the numbness would come back. It's now the middle of June and nothing has changed. Still have butt pain, numbness in my calf and right side of my foot, also pain radiating down the back of my leg. Can anyone tell me if this is permanent or more time for nerve root to heal? Any suggestions will help, I just don't understand this at all.
