I underwent an ACDF surgery oct 2010. Although recovery is going it is slow. Prior to waking up numb from waist down and could barely walk which led to the discovery of herniated disk at c5-6 my right knee had been bothering me. Best I can describe was it felt like it could buckle at any moment and when i got down on my knees say to play w/kids it was very painful. I had an xray on the knee it was negative. After my surgery my knee felt better.
However last couple of weeks it is doing the same as listed above. This morning I actually just walking to the refridgerator it actually did give out and I hit the floor ! That was the first time.
Now mind you prior to my surgery I could barely walk and my right leg for some reason was more affected i could only lift it off the ground about an inch got so bad I had to hang on to my husband to even walk and yes it is my right knee that is bothering me.
So I am wondering could the knee be connected to my neck issues or do you think 2 seperate issues going on ? And has anyone else experienced this at all if their neck problems affected their legs?
Any information or thoughts would be appreciated. Thank You.
