I had L5-S1 fused 06/11/13. I had sciatic pain mostly in my right shin and was told the surgery was to resolve the back pain, but likely would not improve my sciatic pain. The MRI showed minor contact with the nerve, however the sciatic pain started with my back injury. Anyway, since surgery my 2/3 toes from the biggie are so sensitive! Like someone cut the nail far too short. Does anyone else have this? Will it decrease and swelling reduces from the surgery?
