Good Morning ladies & Gents

Thanks to spine health for letting me join,  I've recently had my L5 S1 TLIF done & post op two weeks tomorrow. I'm still sore to the point my left leg, calf, toes & foot are knumb. The siatic pain in more so than before the op, I'm in with the surgeon on Wednesday & I feel I need to let him.know that I'm not right. Can't sit for long either, apologies for going on but when you have pain & feel down as to an op that I thought would help, I'm not getting as yet but early days. My name as I should have mentioned is Sandy, I'm a 45 year guy from Scotland living in Brisbane QLD.
