Hello: I was unable to walk but a few feet at a time without having to decompress my spine. It was 14 days from the time of injury until an emergency disectomy at l5, s1. I am having numbness on my left heel. my calf is tight and feels like I have strained it, although I know it is from left nerve root compression. I was wondering if anyone else shares this experience? If so, how are you handling it? What do u think your future will be like? What has the doctor said? I'm a 40 yr old male that use to run 8 miles before breakfast or use the gym every morning. Does a tens unit help the nerves regrow? What about a subsequent surgery? Thanks for your input.
Peace and Love
