Hi, this is my first post although I have read lots of the threads on here during my recovery and they have really helped. I am now 6mths post op following a ruptured disc L5s1. Everything was going great but recently I have started to calf pain, tenderness on my spine, and a general sense of weakness with some small pains in my buttock and thigh. There's nothing too intense but given everything was going so well this step back is making me panic a bit. Anyone had the same so long after the surgery?
