Numb leg

hi all, 
I ruputured 2 discs in my lower back in April this year, one which pinned my siactic nerve and over the months the pain became unbearable until I eventually had a microdiscectomy in August. Recovery has been good and I now take no pain relief and though my activities continue to be restrictive to a certain extent, I am returning to work in Jan. Though I do have a question for people,  has anybody suffered with numb leg but not with back pain or leg pain? Over the last 2 days my 'bad' has felt weaker than my 'good'  leg, I have a numb feeling and tingling but not pain??  Should I be worried?

    Hi Erin
    I had a microdiscectomy in June. I have not had this issue but if it persists, I would let my doctor know.
