10 weeks post Discetomy L4/L5

Hey there,

I'm 10 weeks post op from a discetomy on L4/L5 this is my third operation in 10 years, initially the pain was completely gone and I was just experiencing stiffness round the wound.

However over the last 3-4 I have started to get pain on my right leg round the calf muscle and a bit of numbness in the foot. I'm no where near as bad as I was pre op in terms of pain but I'm paranoid I have done something to trigger the pain off.

Has any one else experienced this ?? The strange thing is that the pain had totally gone and now it's coming back all be it no where near as bad.

Thanks in advance.
