So I have posted here before stating I was recently diagnosed with lumbar stenosis at l4/l5 level 4 years after a successful fusion at l5/s1. I was having pain in my right hip that I was not sure if was related to the stenosis, and I am still not sure because as long as I do the hip stretches given by PT and take a few advil every day it is not that painful at all.
But my new concern is the fact I am having chronic pain in my heel and top of the foot. Pain that is associated with the already fused level at l5/s1. I looked at the report myself and is said I have bone spurs there even though he told me I was clear at that level. So despite what he says I am thinking the bone spurs are the cause. Now, since I was already fused at that level, what can I do? Is there any other surgeries they can do to remove the spurs. It is scary to think that there is nothing else that can be done. But I don't know. I see him again next week and will obviously ask, but anyone know what options I may have? Like I said, I am fused there already. Ugh, always something. Get the hip feeling right, and now this.
