I'm 4 weeks post op after a microdisectamy to fix a herniated disc. Sciatic pain has gone still some numbness in left foot.
Still getting pain once i start walking the muscle gets very tight in my calf and very severe bursts of nerve pain from my left hip and groin and my lower leg. Not a similar pain to the sciatica I had this comes in quickly very bad and then settles once I stop movement and no ache just sharp nerve pain.
Is this just the nerve healing ? I know it takes time but not sure whether to push through it and keep moving or follow up. Any advice for similar ops and recovery would be appreciated. Just looking for anyone with similar symptoms and the results thanks.
