I had back surgery more than one year ago and my back seems to be doing great. BUT, it is my left leg that is having problems. Because the disc put so much pressure on the sciatica nerve, I had severe nerve damage in my leg. The pain went away from surgery, but I have problems still with slight numbness and a rush of pain to my calf with muscle spasms. Now, my calf muscle tensed up and will not release, making it hard to walk. The doctors say this is just the effects of nerve damage.....but I want to know how to help it! Any suggestions?
