I had TLIF surgery on Sept 12, 2011 and most all pre op pain symptoms seem to be gone.
About 10 days post op I started experiencing horrific pain on the front side of my right thigh. A first the pain would set in at night, however, now it's sporatic. Also riding car even for short distances 15-45 mins cause extreme pian i
n my right testical as though someone has it their fist and sqeezing it!
I am walking wearing my back brace a couple times a day like 500-600 feet at a time. Working from home via internet with heating pad on thigh. When this pian kicks in it's so severe I can't even concentrate.
I'm taking Zanaflex 4 mg every 8 hours and Oxycontin 20 mg every 8 hours put it has little effect on this thigh pain.
I don't want to push it, however, I am an active 51 year old with a 13 year son.. I must get better!
Can anyone relate? possible causes? effective reliee by stretching or excercise? Medication relief?
Any comments or sugestions to run by my doctor will be greatly appreciated.
