I had spinal fusion/laminectomy on 4/12/13. After a week of hell, I started feeling good. By 4 weeks I was pain free, felt 100% and was still cautious as it was early in the healing stages. I was walking 2-3 miles/day as directed by my surgeon. Suddenly a week ago I wake up in severe pain, can't roll over in bed and cannot stand due to weakness in both legs and numbness. I get sharp stabbing nerve pain all day in my back and constant weakness in my legs.I had xrays done which wee unremarkable and now am waiting for approval for an MRI. Anyone else ever experience this? I was doing so well. No taumatic event or anything I can think of that may have caused it. HELP !
