i had L5 S1 spinal fusion last april 2008. since then I have still been having leg cramps in the left calf. My surgeon has me on a drug called Lyrica but it doesnt seem to be working
on my Post OP CT the screws seem to be poking out the back of the vertibre? Does anyone know if this is normal. I am trying to get a second opinion but no other orthopaedic surgeons will even see me.
Has anyone found any drugs that work to stop the leg cramps?
I am only 27 years old and the disc rupture was not caused by an injury, it just happened so no real reason for this to have come about.
Im jsut getting very frustrated with no one wanting to help or offering anything other than bandaid fixes not solutions
