Hi : New to this forum:
Had fusion surgery on L3, L4, L5 and S1 on December 12th 2013. I am now 5 weeks post op and I think I am doing fairly well with my recuperation however I am experiencing severe nerve pain in my legs and feet. I have had Charlie horse pains in my calves at night, feet itch sometimes but the pain in my feet feels like the skin was completely burned off of them. I cannot have anything touching them or it drives me insane. This isn't all the time just in the evenings usually. I was just wondering if this in normal post op. My back still hurts if I have been up on my feet too much during the day so I am worried that I may have broken something. My 6 week check up is next week ..... Is any of this normal? or am I just being a baby...... Thanks for listening to me whine......
