Good morning all. I just have a question to see if anyone else has experienced the same. I'll be 3 weeks post-op tomorrow PLIF.
Since yesterday I'm having very superficial pain in my legs. Only in the back, from the back of the knees on down, both legs. The very slightest touch is painful. There is no warmth, redness, bruising. No signs of phlebitis or thrombophlebitits. I don't have any varicose veins. I am having some edema of the ankles, but I was having that before surgery. Also some edema over the right tibia. The doctors had no explanation for the edema pre surgery.
I'm going to put a call in to NS tomorrow, I just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this.
Thank you in advance and have a wonderful day
