Thanks for the info.

Leg weakness could be due to various reasons.One of them is spine problem where there is compression of the spinal cord by the bulging disc.

Another cause could be due to electrolyte( salt) imbalance which causes cramps and weakness.

Decreased blood supply to the legs also can give such symptoms which can be due to previous abdominal surgeries.

I would advise,you keep the hydration well and drink plenty of oral fluids and rehydration fluids like Gatorade or pedialyte solutions.If the symptoms persists then you should see your doctor who can order tests to diagnose the problem- blood tests , X rays and doppler of the legs.

I hope this helps you
