I just had a disctomy on my L4, L5, S1 on Monday. I spent the night in the spine wing of the hospital where I had horrible pain down my leg. I had previously had tinglying down my leg from the sciaticia caused from the herniated disc but not to this degree. It felt like someone was stabbing me with a butcher knife and twisting it. After enough meds I finally fell asleep. I saw my surgeon the next morning when he came to dischage me and he thought it was a bit odd but said to keep an eye on it.
This morning was horrible again... Did anyone else have this? I also have no feeling in my toes either.
