More information : I’m not sure what your question is or even what your reference to your ablation means, but we need more info. Do you have a wound? Are your legs swollen? Pictures, details and specific questions are very helpful.

Leaking Clear Fluid: If there is swelling and pressure, at times the pressure will squeeze out fluids like water or lymph because it will not return to the heart. Elevation and compression of the ankle may help. An evaluation of your circulation to the legs is needed and an analysis of the fluid would be helpful.

Don't smoke: Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do to decrease sputum production. Using anti-inflammatory medications such as advair or symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) can also help in some cases as can treating any and all infections early.

Yes: You describe symptoms of radiculopathy which is when a nerve malfunctions due to some type of pressure on the nerve. You should see your family md for evaluation and they can do an MRI for evaluation. Of course, before surgery, you should try physical therapy and epidural steroid injections if possible.
