My TLIF fusion was 9/29. My "bad" leg, the rt. one, felt 90% better right away! But my good leg (the left one), which had no pain before surgery, was numb since i awoke from surgery. It's very weak and now it's gotten painful. I'm so scared.
I can walk with a cane, to support the newly hurting left leg. Sleeping in any position hurts my left leg. I'm so disappointed -- there was no pain in this leg before!!! Has anyone experienced this??
I will see my surgeon's Fellow tomorrow. He thinks it's all ok but wants me to be seen asap. Since he's going out of town I will see his Fellow orthopedic. Are there any questions you all can think of that I should ask the Fellow?
Thanks so very much.
TLIF L4/5 on 9/29/10
