SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!
I had a work injury on 11/02/2012, finally had back surgery on 10/31/2013. im approx. 3 1/2 weeks post op. surgery went well have 6 screws, rods, plates & cement. by back no longer hurts but for past week I have severe left hip & leg pain that radiates down to my ankle. wtf is going on with this. I cant sleep at night due to this pain. im on soma & was on prednisone for 5 days. is this normal to still be in this much pain after 3 weeks post op/ I have a high pain tolerance but this is kickin my ass. anyone out there have any advice or same problems? this all started after I started using a bone stimulator I was instructed to use. I have not used it in a few days thinking that this had something to do with this new pain. apparently I was mistaken. any help or advice would be appreciated.
