This is Mary.
I am age 50. New at this! Sorry if I am doing this wrong.
I had anterior lumbar discectomy and fusion L3-L4 with plates, screws and allograft bone on August 14th for severe spinal stenosis and excruciating nerve pain down entire right leg. Surgery was a success but 39 days post op developed severe pain on tops of both ankles and feet. All I have done is walk at the gym with surgeon approval. Was very active member at the gym and now I can't walk. Feels like both feet and ankles are on fire! Actually stuck them in ice last night but nothing helps. Unable to sleep as muscles ache and twitch. Sciatica is coming back in right calf as well. Don't understand what is going on? This nerve pain in ankles and feet didn't exist before. Spent today and yesterday on couch. Tried neuronton but it never helped! Please help with advice! Thank you.
