Back Problems board

Prior to my surgery two weeks ago when my sciatica was really bad in my right butt and leg, I also had a weird sort of stiffness where it felt like my leg was all one unit (if that makes sense). I can't really explain it but the muscles were so tight it was hard to bend it. Anyway, it's been two weeks now since my L4-L5 laminectomy and that weird stiffness is coming back. THere's no sciatica just that stiffness. I'm not sure if this is normal or what. Today my leg really aches. Also, does anyone get a little depressed from all the medications? I'm on Norco, valium, neurontin, etc Thanks, Terri
