Had lateral release 4 months ago, still have extreme pain in thigh area above knee/swelling of muscle area?

Follow up with doc: This obviously is not normal. I recommend you follow-up with your surgeon or get a 2nd opinion.

I have bilateral thigh pain stiffness when walking, recently I have been getting muscle spasms in my right calf. Could this be spinal stenosis?
