Can anyone say what this could mean? (Just your ideas, I won't take it as medical advice!)
I had my 7 week follow up on Monday, and the surgeon did the straight leg test on me, and the left leg got a zap of sciatica down to my calf. He didn't comment. Now I am wondering if it meant anything. It sounds like it could mean that there is compression on the nerve again. Over the last 3 or 4 weeks, I have been getting increasing leg symptoms again. Not as bad as before surgery, but they are definately familiar sensations. I have also been getting the same muscle twitching and cramps in my toes, top of my foot and even under my foot last night.
I hope that this is all normal and not a sign that I have scar tissue growing!!
My next appointment with the surgeon is in a month's time.
