Has anyone had a plexus wrapped around and constricting their spinal nerves?


  • 12 weeks postop plif surgery. During surgery they also discovered a large bundle of blood vessels (called a plexus) that were wrapped around and constricting my nerves from cerebral spinal fluid. Now I have severe nerve pain in my lower legs, more like sever burning. The MD thinks that because I had no flow of CSF for so long, they are just inflammed with the increased flow again. Started PT last week and my back pain is unbearable. He's already tried to cut back on my lortab to 5mg from 7.5mg and now my pain is constant. Anyone with similar above problems?
