Re: Post surgery L 5 S1 calf and foot pain.
I had a L5-S1 microdisectomy 11-1-11, i was sore for 3-4 weeks with alot of discomfort in the surgical area. I came out with more leg weakness and numbness. The doc kept telling me give it more time after every visit for 5 months. I am still in pain now and have found out that i have reherniated my disc/ scare tissue. Everyone heals differently. Dont try to do to much to early. Good luck to u!!!
