Smile Re: Post surgery L 5 S1 calf and foot pain.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I spoke with my surgeon yesterday and he pretty much said its only early days (10 days post op) however he did mention that the nerve was very pinned and the hernition was protruding 10mm which hevsaid is quite servere...so he said the nerve had been very aggravated.
He also mentioned that he took the herniation away as well as a lot of ligament fragment that was on the other side of the nerve which was also placing pressure on the nerve.so nerve would be very upset from all the movement during the procedure.hence the leg pain I'm experiencing.

One thing he did mention was that he was very conservative when it came shaving the actualmdisc itself once the herniated material was taken away.

He mentioned that because I am a large guy 6ft 4 &105kg he wanted to keep as much disc in place to potentially assist recovery and lessen the chance of re herniation.

Fingers crossed the pain will start subsiding.
