Hi everyone it has been a while since I was on here. So I will do a fast summery and then to my ???"S
Ok in may of 2007 I was hurt at work which ended up being a sprained and strained back. Which was the first diagnoses. Then after a few month and many different meds., physical therapy, injections that did not work, being cent to a different doc., MRI's I was then told that i had a bulging disk. So in July of 2008 I had my level one fusion in my L5-S1 with hardware. Of course it took me the three months to heal and be able to fell good again.
I thought that I was doing good for three months. Then I started to have pain again starting about 8 months after I had the surgery the pain came back.
I went to a pain clinic and did more injections. but they were not helping. So course if it being workers comp. we had to have things approved. One of the injections ended up being a spinal tap. So I had decided to do a hardware removal. Which was done in Dec. 2009.
So here we are. I did ok for the first week. I had same-day surgery. so i came home. ended up not being able to take the pain meds that was sent home. So I was not taking more than one loratab a night for it. and about a week later my incision started to leek or what ever you want to call it.
Now I am getting this pain that goes down my left leg.
That is like a charlie horse. With burning too. I also fell like my leg is going to go out from under me. I am going to see the doc on Wen. to see if things are ok.
My ??'s are has any one had this happen to you and what was it. The only time this has happened was right before my first surgery. and I ended up using a cane for about 2 months.
Sorry it is so long to explain in the short version.
