Leg numbness from Herniated disk
Hi, I had back surgery a year ago. The surgeon did remove the part of my herniated disk on my S1 nerve and filed away the bone spur that was pinching the S1 as well. My symptoms prior to the surgery was pain in the lower back and numbness, like hitting your funny bone not foot fall asleep numbness, down my right leg and into my foot. The pain is gone post surgery, but the numbness from my knee to my foot lingers and sometimes I can't even walk because it is so intense. Any recommendations on what to do now? I've had two rounds of injections into my L5/S1 area. I am also stretching and walking to try to strengthen the muscles and such. Thanks.
