I had a L4/L5 Laminotomy and ever since the day after my surgery felt a new pain that I didn't go in with... Nerve pain down my right leg. At first it was burning, like I had dipped my whole leg into a hot boiling tub of oil. That pain went away after a few months and ever since I have had some dull pain down my leg, but nothing too bad.
Suddenly now, 18 months afterwards I am feeling a very strong sharp pain in my right hip and down into my foot. It feels as if someone is hammering a four inch nail into my hip at night when I'm trying to roll over, get up out of bed or just laying on my back. Ugh.
Does anyone else have this problem? I'm sure hoping that I don't have to go under the knife again... I was not happy with my doctor's bedside manner in the first place - Once I was released from the hospital I only spoke to the nurse and that was about my pain pills. No follow up no nothing.
