Stiff leg and difficulty walking

Hello to all,

This is my first post. I had a double laminectomy on L3-L4-L5 and tumor resection in the dura 3 months ago. I was in the hospital for 21 days, I was an inpatient rehab for 14 days because after surgery my right leg was numb and weak. Rehab was great got me walking with a walker and had no more back pain. Unfortunately for the past month I have pain in my right leg and knee pain as well. The pain is unbearable. It's from the hip to my knee. The muscles tighten really tight and when it releases I get a sharp jolt pain. It's painful every time I get up. I went back to work 3 weeks ago and it's only getting worse. I'm still walking with a walker. I've called the nurses and they tell me it's normal to experience this. I see my neuro surgeon tomorrow for my 3 month check and I'm hoping to get some answers. I'm also doing PT 3xs a week. 

Please se let me know if anyone has experience this. 

Thanks in advance
