Yesterday I had a laporoscopy for endometriosis and in recovery

This answer was rated:

Yesterday I had a laporoscopy for endometriosis and in recovery I noticed the left side of my lower leg is numb and I can tilt my left foot upwards. The numbess is only on the left side of my lower limb. The nurses said I was in stirrups for the proceedure which was only 30 - 40 mins worth but there was nothing pressing on my left leg side so they were unsure whether the op position would have caused a nerve to compressed (that it usually occurs in much longer surgeries. I am concerned and wondering how long it will take to improve.. please help!
