I have a quick question, I hope someone can help me, I just had a L3-L4 spinal fusion with cage and rods. minumally invasive. Well I have numbness on my left side on my thigh. I am thinking this is normal cause when I woke up from surgery it was numb, and I assume it was from the nerves that the Dr. cut. Well now I have had this pain in my right leg up to my thigh like around the back as well, and it is my whole upper leg on the front. I have had it for about 2 mos. I was hoping it would get better. But whenever I use it to squat, or put pressure on my leg, for anything it hurts awful. If I move it just right, it feels like a joint where my pelvic bone is. Is this a SI joint? All I know is I told the Dr about last visit, and he said it sounds like a muscle. Well my muscle cannot be hurting this long. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. It just aches all the time. My muscle relaxers do not touch it, and I am not on vicodin, but the tramadol that I am on does not do anything as well.
