8 weeks ago I had a laminectomy to remove a synovial cyst and clean out the area around L4/l5. I had been experiencing pain from my knee down through my heal and foot. After the surgery the pain has gone from my leg and most of my foot. I still have some numbness around my ankle and when I exercise on the treadmill, my foot seems to go to sleep.
My surgeon says the nerves will heal in time and these problems will go away. Is there anything I can do to help the healing process?
