Right Leg Numbness and Pain after Spinal

I received a Spinal on 6/23/11 and now have the top of my right leg numb from about 4 inches above the knee up to junction of groin and about 7 inches across in the middle.

It hurts, sometimes electrical like jabs, is not getting better and Dr who gave Spinal said that it is due to side effect of the Spinal. I have been told to go to a neurologist but am getting the feeling that I am going to be like this for rest of my life

How can I get the feeling back and get rid of the pain

Vicodin helps but not much

TENS helped for a few days and then made it worse

Excerise does not help or hurt -- sitting is the worse - walking is not a problem.

Comments?? Please



  • How do you find instructions on how to your the system for Chat and responding to messages?

    Do I need to pay someone a fee?

    Why gets back to me?

    What do I do?

    I told the Anesthesia guy to do what he felt best and that was a mistake so what do I do to get the feeling back and get rid of the mess on the right leg top thigh

    Will Neurontin help numbness?

    Has anyone had experience with a TENS unit and Numbness?

  • I am having pain down my left leg and am scared as hell. 10 days post op. Have you found any relief yet?
  • I have not done this before so not sure if doing it right -- that pain down your left leg is what I had for many years like 50 years ago - Sciatic nerve pain and is bad - i put a lift on one shoe which helped a lot and as the years went by did way with it and do not have any pain at all in that area or on that side.

    My pain was caused by a Spinal anesthesia and somehow he did something wrong and now I have missery in that damm leg - top of thigh - pills do not make it go away but if you take enough vicodin it does help.

  • A good blog always comes-up with new and exciting information and while reading I have feel that this blog is really have all those quality that qualify a blog to be a good one
