I’m A 48 yo female. Developed sudden right foot drop. Had L4/5 hemilaminectomy and discectomy 3/9/20. Day 3 recovery had right leg sciatica. Zapping pain moved up to inner thigh day 4. Day 4 also feeling numbness in right saddle area. Completely numb but thank goodness I can still feel when I have to go to the bathroom. Surgeon told me he had never heard of this and I am on my own to figure it out. After speaking to other physicians and reading on the internet that it will take time. I never see the outcome and how long it takes typically. It’s very scary and frustrating. Can anyone share a similar experience?
