Patient : I had back surgery to remove part of a disc that was bulging and pressing on the nerve. My left side from the waist down was numb. I am still a little numb on the left buttock. I am also still having issues urinating and have not had a bowl movement. I had the surgery on Oct 20th. I am taking steroids, which has helped get some of the feeling back. Is there any other treatment that will help with this?
