Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your History suggests you have Sciatica. Do you have any Loss of Bowel or bladder control? You have to see your Orthopedist Immediately so that he can examine you and suggest MRI to confirm whether there is any nerve compression, by your Vertebrae in your Lower back. The compression of Sciatic Nerve cause, Tingling sensation and Numbness. If it confirmed, you will require another surgery. Your treating Orthopedist will know better.
Following this, you will require Physiotherapy. Do moderate Intensity exercises, avoid lifting heavy weights and get adequate rest. Stick to your Treatment Plan and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health.
