HI all... I am 6 days out of L4-S1 PLIF. I never had a numb/asleep leg before surgery. But now my right is always asleep/numb.. Feels like my skin is going to break open sometimes. Has anyone else experienced this? and how long did it last? I know my nerves have to heal as it did with my neck. I have a little going on, on the left foot but not as much as the right, which is where most of my nerves were flattened. Going to try a ice pack to see if that will help back there. Hope this goes away soon..I try to walk around but it doesn't seem to be relieving it. Hope someone can give me a little of their experience.
and God Bless
