Hi, I am waiting to have lumbar fusion right now (l5/s1 maybe l4/5. I have low back buttocks thigh pain with numbness/tingling/cold wet feeling in left foot. The last few weeks I have very tight calf muscles in both legs. I try to stretch them out but they remain tight. Do you think this might just be the way I walk now (slow, cautious, stiff) or could this mean that my impingement is getting worse?Confussed as it is in both legs. Does anyone else experience this and was it a symptom as time progressed?
