No strengyh in my achilles from L5-S1 herniation impinging on S1 nerve root

Started by harrykush on 06/03/2011 1:18pm

Has anyone lost strength in their Achilles from L5-S1 herniation impinging on the S1 nerve root. If so did it ever come back without surgery? It’s been 2 month since I lost strength in my Achilles and my doctor is tell me that the only way I will get it back is if I have surgery (discectomie) to remove stuff impinging on my nerve. Scared of surgery with all the horror stories but want to be able to run and jump so I am going to do the surgery. Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing? Do you get back strength in your Achilles?
