I am a first time visitor to this site. I had a 2 level fusion (L4-S1) on 11/28/11. I developed a limp from L. Leg pain about 3 months prior to surgery. I have minimal pain post op but still have some pain and numbness in my left hip and upper outer leg. I am really afraid that this limp will be permanent. Has anyone had any experience with this? My surgeon says "I hope it will go away "
