Post Back Surgery Question

Patient: I had a laminectomy with resection of a lipoma at the cauda equina 4 weeks ago. I still have numbness between my legs and hips and some left foot numbness. Should this eventually subside as the nerves heal. Also have tailbone pain along with this.

 

 

Symptoms: numbness to hips, between legs, down left leg to toes, pulling at tailbone with pain.

 

 

Doctor:
