L5 - S1 TLIF

Due to back ache and numbness in right leg, the surgery ( L5-S1 TLIF) was done recently. Though back ache and numbness in right leg have gone, now numbness has started in left leg. I would like to know if the numbness problem at left leg will slowly vanish on taking NERVMAX capsules. I am otherwise OK and able to walk and climb stairs etc., psychologically feeling bad about numbness in left leg.

Hello....... Post operative residual effect will be there after surgery... Now most of your symptoms subsided that's good to hear... Nevrvimax is given to strengthen nerves.. You didn't mention when you underwent operation... Numbness may subside over period of time.. You have to continue physiotherapy recommended by doctor.
