I have been having some sciatic nerve pain starting in my buttock shooting down my leg, it is quite painful behind my knee and along my ankle into my little toe. I am 3 weeks post op. Initially I had no nerve pain after surgery but after about a week I started to move around and found the nerve pain returning. It is nothing like it was pre op so I am hopeful it is just nerve inflammation or nerve regeneration.
I am now wondering if I have been too sedentary in my recovery and if walking longer distances each day might actually help with my recovery rather than hinder it? Has anyone found this to be the case?
I find when I am active, if I walk or stand or sit for prolonged periods then the nerve pain increases and after I lie down when I initially stand again the pain is unbearable, brings me to tears it is such a sharp pain. I'm just so concerned about reinjuring myself or doing something that may cause pain like I had pre op.
