post-op electric shocks and hot feet and legs

I had ALIF with cages and posterior rods and screws in late July. I had severe lightning bolt shocks in my legs for about a month, that lessened to hand grenade nerve pain in my legs for a month. For the past 6 weeks I have electric shock from my shins to my toes and this same area gets progressively more hot to the touch to the point where it feels like I have fever. Is this neuropathy?? Is this something that will calm down in a while or should I go back to get this checked out by the doctor because permanent nerve damage could occur? It is pretty uncomfortable and I have it most of the day. Any advice from those in the know is appreciated.


  • My vote is you go back and see the doctor. I know I have permanent nerve damage and that is some of the things I deal with. So I would go back and see the doctor and just let them check it out. Of course it could always be something not related but you never know.
