increasing numbness of foot and leg

Six months after lumbar disectomy my left foot and leg is getting increasingly numb,no pain(had pain 2 months after surgery but pain went away)my left foot is completely numb and now tingling is starting as high as my left knee,anyone else having this problem this long after surgery? I don't know if I should wait longer or start getting active in another "fix"


  • It can take a while for nerves to heal. After my fusion the numbness would come and go. However, if its really bothering you don't hesitate to call your doctor after all they are paid to help you.
