    Hello,

    Thank you for this forum. I had a Lamenectomy about 3 months ago. My issue started about 10 months ago from basketball with nerve pain in my right leg. I tried to stretch and do press ups to move the pain out, but then it jumped to my left leg and got so bad I couldn’t walk. My right side was ok, it was all left. I had an MRI that showed a herniation in my L5/S1. After the surgery, my left foot stayed numb for about 2 months, but now, I have a bit of pain back in my right side again. I went to physical therapy and have been stretching and doing nerve glides twice a day but it just seems to be staying about the same. Is this normal and something that may go away or is it likely not going to get any better since it’s been 3 months? Thank you so much for your time!

    It can take as long as six months to know outcomes of pain and numbness. Give the symptoms another three months to resolve and if they are still present, please recontact this forum.
