gm. just a question. had lower back fusion one and half year ago. still not feeling that great. Have a lot of pain in back, dr says it all muscle, after an x=ray. now experiencing deep leg pain in both calfs of legs. expepcially while at work and in the evening. anyone else having this issue, or is it just common. don't know what to do, going to pain management doctor next week. surgeon had released me.


  • Do you lumbar spine issues. Did you have this leg pain before your surgery because if its new you may want to see your Primary Dr. to assess you for lower back issues. When I first had lower back and leg pain I had to see Physiotherapist first then after 3 months got an MRI. But if you have any numbness I think it's important to let your Dr. know of this change.

    I have C-spine issues as well as lumbar so don't know if that would be an issue or something else going on. I hope you can get some answers soon. Charry
