:))) Hi, I am new here but hoping I can find someone to help relate. I had my 5th back surgery on May13th, I am 45 1st one was done when I was in my 20's etc. This one went wrong in several ways. They went to fuse my l2-3 L3-4 because I am fused from there down. Now I have parestheis in my legs my gait has changed weakness in legs and most bothering is my buttocks is numb (like asleep) I now have deep leg aches in both legs. Anyone else have any similiar experiences.



  • I'm sorry to hear. That's rough you're going through so much after 5 surgeries. I have similar pain and weakness in both legs though I haven't had surgery. I have a herniated disc at L5-S1. I hope you give your Dr a call for another MRI. Take care. Charry
