It's been 10 months since my lower back fusion. I still have numbness down my buttocks, outer part of my legs, numb calves and very numb feet. I can tell my lower back is much better strength-wise after the surgery and I have no pain. The inner part of my thighs and my genital area are fine. I went back to my surgeon on a recent check up and was told that there still may be some issues below my surgery area that may effect the outside nerves down into my legs and fee.t I'm waiting for the approval on an MRI to see what's going on. Have any others of you had this type of experience?
