I had my second laminectomy/disectomy on L5-S1 in January 2005. I felt great after surgery and had no pain. I started PT and everything has been goin good except I get sciatica off and on down both legs but not both at the same time. Also my calfs and feet have been going numb. I can be sittin, laying, or doin my exercises and one of my calf and foot will go numb. I don't remember this happenin the first time when my first surgery failed but yet I don't find these symptoms normal either. Should I call my doctor and see if I can get an MRI or what to see how it goes??
Thanks for the replies....I will probably end up calling my doctor. I was walking on my tredmill last night and I was close to the 2 mile mark and I got a sharp pain in my back and a sharp tingling feeling down my right leg. I stopped and iced. I tried to get up off my bed but could barely move. I did wake up this morning with some pain relief but my PT wants to see me in the morning. Hopefully it wasn't anything bad becuase I don't need that right now....i'm not sure how the pain even happened becuase I have been walking everyday now for the past month and a half! Anyways thanks for the replies!
