after X-Stop Surgery

edited 06/11/2012 - 8:36 AM in Back Surgery and Neck Surgery
I had the X-Stop procedure Feb/09, right after surgery My feet were numb especially the right one, The Dr. said that it was normal, now after eight months they are still numb and now my right toes are burning and sharp pain. The Dr. has no exlaination except that happens when you get older, I didnt have any trouble with my feet before the surgery, which by the way I feel didnt help at all. has anyone experianced this after back Surgery especially X-Stop/


  • Have you thought about going to a different fellowship-trained spinal specialist for a review of your case? One of the advantages to having the X-Stop is that it can be easily removed if it isn't helping.

    I doubt it is just a matter of "getting older" that is causing your foot pain. A spinal nerve that is being compressed is more likely the cause.

    I would go to another specialist for a second opinion. You may need the X-Stop removed and a different procedure.

    Be sure your hip pain is actually caused by a hip problem and is not referred pain from a spinal nerve. Symptoms can be very similar.
