Muscle weakness post surgery for Sciatica

Started by Honish on 03/21/2016 5:29am

Hi all, I had a surgery for herniated disc at L4-L5 and L5-S1 which was pinching my sciatic nerve in December 2015. My walking has become quite normal now but there is still some muscle weakness on my hip. Also I experience foot drop and some muscle stiffness in my left foot. My doctor told me that my nerve wasn't damaged but full recovery will take time. Its been almost 3 months now but I am still having some muscle weakness. Is this normal? Have I damaged my nerve?
