I had my microD last wed 12/22/10. I was doing great the next day. Until 48 hours later I got violently sick. Since then I've been getting muscle spasms in my calf, mainly on the posterior medial edge. I'm curious if anyone else had muscle spasms after l5/s1? I have almost full strength, no pain (except from the muscles tightening). I'm just hoping these spasms die down.
I noticed the spasms a few times before I got sick, but now I'm on baclofen to help stop them and they still break thru at 10mg every 6-8.
I had deep tissue massage 2x a week for 12 weeks prior to the surgery so the muscles were as loose as we could get them. And being a gymnast I stretched as much as I could, I switched to swimming 1 mile every day to stay in shape for the surgery. Plus PT for weak glutes, and my own strength training still.
I'm currently doing light stretched again, and just walking thought the day; trying not to risk re injuring it. Chomping at the bit to get back in the pool and praying the cramps stop they're really bothersome and locking up the lower leg.
Just wondering if the spasms are normal and what others experiences have been? I have some in the piraformis,glute,hamstring, but they are very rare (once a day i might feel it twitch)
