I had terrible sciatica for about 8-12 months in which therapy, injection, etc.did not work. I subsequently had an mri and it was found I had a L5-S1 herniation. I had surgery on August 24, 2016. I felt great after surgery and started walking a few weeks after. Its been about 48 days since surgery and I still have some hip / leg discomfort which goes into the outer calf at times in certain positions. I still have good strength in my leg with no weakness. Im bummed as my surgeon gave me 20 pills of a muscle relaxer SOMA and Im waiting for my next appoint in a few weeks. He did not want me to start PT just yet. I am wondering if my discomfort is from Piriformis Syndrome or a re-herniation, etc. I still have very good strength in leg and walking is no issue. I tried to lightly stretch Piriformis and seems to make me more sore. Anymore else having these issues? Thanks in advance..
