OK this is great! I had shoulder surgery in Oct 2008 and then in Feb 2009 I had a 2 level PLIF (L4 L5 & S1) with all the hardware. I still have nerve pain in left foot but when I go anywhere where I have to walk far, I use my canes and it takes the pressure off the back. (if I dont I PAY FOR IT at night!) Anyways a few weeks ago I woke up with numb and tingly hands. (I also have herniations at C5-6 & T11-12). When I went to my ortho, the NP said it was carpel tunnel! Told me to wear these wrist braces. Hmmmmm...not sure they work. I tried starting PT a couple weeks ago, but that didnt work. I just got massive muscle spasms (charlie horses). So they decided hydrotherapy was for me and I LOVE IT!! Anyways, I was just wondering if anyone developed this after surgery and did it go away?? I do not want anymore surgeries. Thanks for any info you can give me...I do appreciate it!
