hi, I had decompression surgery mid May for a large central disc bulge at L5 S1 ( surgeon said there was a lot of compression so went in both sides to try to avoid the nerves).Since the beginning of August I hhave been in hospital 5 times due to the severity of my pain through the night (I feel like I've been run over by a bus!).I get stabbing pain in my front right thigh and horrible achey pain in my center back, behind and below my scar.I have various areas of leg pain, though not constant, but I feel it in my muscles and the soles of my feet.This is all in my right leg.
My question is though, can anyone tell me about vaginal numbness.Sorry about the question, but does it extend all the way inside or just the outside and is it gradual and it it immediate and very obvious? I ask because I dont feel much at all (only very deep- sorry) when I am with my husband and I dont know if this is a psyc thing, a childbirth thing or a back issue.I see my surgeon at the end of Oct, but I dont want to have him doing anything 'unnesessary' to me! lol
By the way I'm on oxycontin, oxynorm, gabapentin,amytriptilene and prozac and the pain is STILL excruciating by 3am!
Thank you in advance
