I have read here on a few posts of lower back and leg symptoms going away after ASDF surgery. If anyone has had this experience please describe to me your pre surgery lower symptoms. I have very lower back pain (Right side) and a pins and needle right leg for almost three weeks now. My time table is as follows:
3/5/09: Bad ER Visiting left upper back and arm pain.
Bunch of doctor visits, MRI, Pain doc, Surgeon, ect....
3/29/09: Minor umbness starts in right foot.
4/12/09: Start to feel the very lower back (top of butt) right side pain, Leg now kinda numb all day for two weeks. Also starting to feel some right arm heavyness and clumbsyness.
4/15/09: Surgeon does not understand the right arm feeling I am explaining but notes it and schedules surgery for 4/28/09.
Today: Exausted and have been awake for pretty much a month now with a few hours a night of pill induced sleep.
Has anyone had this many insane symptoms from just one cervical herniation? please let me know so I can have a little hope when I wake up on 4/28.
