After your redo-microdiscectomy, you have “a very deep aching feeling from the back of my thigh to my foot. Very Uncomfortable, and 2 of my toes on that foot are numb.”

This can be nerve irritation from root manipulation during surgery. If this pain is problematic, you can ask your surgeon for a 5 day course of oral steroid which can be quite helpful. Give this pain another 4 weeks to diminish but see if you can gain access to an oral steroid.
