    Hi,

    I had a lot of on and off ache yesterday evening into the night at the lower part of the back near the incision area. I was a little worried as to what that could be. I hope nothing more than things settling or ache from wearing that back brace and all.

    This morning it is more around the left hip.

    Sit back and let your body heal. There will be delayed aches due to healing and the inflammatory cascade. The nerve will swell after decompression. Let your body heal.

    Ok
    I guess the symptoms in to 2 big toes on right and left foot, give that time to heal?

    It will take time unless nerves are damage. If so I’ll get nerve test later. Too soon now.

    Before I attempt to run again this summer I plan to get new MRI first. Even if I’m doing grest
