Just had C4/5,5/6 and /7 fused aproximatley 2 weeks ago

The other day I went to get up and my leg wouldnt work..It just kept going from under me and I fell to the ground...This happened a few times before the op, but after the discogram in January..Since Monday when I had the first fall, my legs and arms continue to have seconds of numbness and dont want to move..I see my Specialist who performed the op on Saturday...Dont know if its related to the cervical fusions or the replacement and fusion done last year at L4/5 and L5/S1..
Did this happen to anyone at all??


  • Well both my Specialist and GP dont know why this is happening...
    I get numbness and pins and needles everytime my feet hit the floor and it goes all the way up and down my body now, not just my back..

    Saw my GP today and he stated to phone my Specialist as I has his mobile number and go straight to hospital if it happens again over the weekend, otherwise I have another appt on Monday morning
