Hi all, first time post.
I am based in UK and am 6 weeks post PLIF L4/5 and L5/S1.
Surgery went well with no complications and all pre surgery problems have so far gone (right hip pain and sciatic pain in right calf).
However, about 3 weeks ago I started with horrible pain in both feet. The pain changes from raging heat, to dull ache, to extreme tenderness where I cant stand anything touching it.
It has caused me severe lack of sleep.
Surgeon has now put me on Gabapentin 300mg, 3 times per day, 10mg Amiltriptyline, 1 at bed time and also tramadol 50mg.
I started these last Thursday but so far they have had little effect on the pain.
I am in a lot more pain now than I was before the surgery
Hopefully this is just the nerves in my back unsettled with the surgery, but has anyone else here experienced this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
