Hi wigado, Do you think it is muscular like spasms or do you think it feels like a nerve pain like sciatic nerve? Does it feel like nerve compression symptoms like before the surgery? I had lumbar laminectomies & i had radiating pain down my leg before surgery but still had some postop but intermittent associated with numbness & electric like shocks, pins & needles. It took 6 months before this nerve pain stopped happening,my neurosurgeon told me that the nerves took time to heal & come back to life after being compressed.
