Loss of Mobility after Spinal Operations
)) Recently I seem to have lost the propulsion in my legs and my back pain has become severe again! Has anyone any idea what is causing this as I am quite worried? I had injections on 10 December 2010 to L4/5/6 and S1 as there was some swelling around that area thought to have been caused by movement of metalwork in spine. I have also got quite bad pain in cervical area. I am due to see my Surgeon on 26 January 2011 so hope he can come up with some sort of solution as this is beginning to get to me. My balance has also become very bad and I seem to stumble backwards!
