On Nov 25, I had surgery on my lower back where they shaved 2 of 3 buldging discs,and removed a cist filled with spinal fluid.
The pain in my lower back, leg, & foot is gone, but my left foot and leg are still completely numb.
Over the past 2 weeks, I've been experiencing horrible migraine headaches, sharp pains from my neck to mid-back. I have scoliosis, but my mid-back feels like it's in a tight knot 24 hrs a day. My shoulders stay tense all day, and I feel like my posture (slumping of shoulders) is getting worse. I've never had the best posture, but I can "feel" a difference.
I'm never comfortable regardless if I'm sleeping, standing, or sitting.
Has anyone else felt the same side effects post-op?
Thanks so much for anyone's advise and input.
