L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain. As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read more

Returning left foot pain, top/side of the foot, directly down from small toe about halfway. Cuboid? Calcaneous? Pretty sure not rolled ankle. Help

X-ray: Avulsion of the base of the 5th metatarsal at the insertion of the peroneus brevis muscle would be the most common cause. An ossicle at the same point could also be painfully arthritic. An x-ray will prove the Dx. Healing simply takes careful neglect over time. ...Read more

Pain in big toe mild swelling after falling down stairs. Difficulty walking (walking on side of foot). Pain wakes me and I think bone is displaced?

If you fell: Downstairs and have difficulty walking the foot likely should be xrayed. You also sound like at minimum should be walking in a surgical shoe that prevents the toe and metatatarsal joint from bending. Ice would do you well as well.

Good luck. ...Read more

See your doctor: You need to go see your doctor ASAP. You need to be evaluated for problems such as a blood clot which is rare but significant pain and swelling of a lower leg can be serious, especially since you are pregnant. On the low side, it might just be edema and ankle synovitis (swelling) which ice, elevation and rest can always help. ...Read more
