Wife had Surgery on 2-11-11, removed bone spur, and had a bone graff fusion to realign the spine L4-L5.
6-1-12: While bending over to get a magazine she felt acute pain. Ever since then annoying symptoms from pain in hip area, to a strained feeling in the left leg, to tingling sensation in feet. Went back to Surgeon, and he thought the scar tissue formed by the surgery probably tore slightly and this caused inflammation around the nerve. Recommended to wait approximatley three to four weeks for healing and for the nerves to settle back down. Prescribed 800 mg Ibuprofen.
Anyone else ever have this experience. My wife is very despondent and depressed over this. Many other surgeries over the last 4 years (Heart Valve Replacement, Pericardial Window, Gall Bladder removal, and this back surgery)
