I suffered back pain off and on for 3 years. It finally culminated in a prolapse disc. The day I actually went for a private MRI scan after months of waiting for a NHS scan the problem increased massively. I suffered excruciating pain, numbness down the left side of my left leg and the left part of my foot. I was also unable to stand on tip toes. I was rushed into casualty and then sent home with pain killers etc..
I've now had a disectomoy (about 2 months ago) and my surgeon told me there was a 80% chance of a full recovery. I've got alot of strength back in my leg and can stand on tip toes however i still suffer the numbness and pins and needles in my foot as well as some occasional pain in the buttock. Has anyone else experienced a similar situation. I'm trying to return to my sporting activities but am really nervous of making it worse and wondering will the numbness ever fade.
It would be good to hear from anyone who can share similar experiences.
