have any relief from leg pain?
I'm only asking because I'm thinking about seeing my surgeon again for intense inner/sometimes outer upper leg pain & trembling. I've already had S1 through L3 fused over the years, L2/3 being the last one a few years back. But this winter has taken its toll & I'm kinda glued to my cane now. I looked online for some human body pain nerve maps and 'followed' my pain paths with the body/nerve graphic pics/diagrams I downloaded & L1/L2 seems to be the source.
I still have the same pre-surgery lower back pain I've always had - each of the surgeries had worked for a short period of time - but being a guy, that just meant that the lack of pain means I could go back to doing stuff...;>)
So, if you had Upper Leg Pain (ULP) prior to surgery, did you get any relief afterwards? Did the weakness & trembling go away? Can you walk more than 10 feet without a cane or feel like your legs are going to collapse? Electrical stabbing shocks stop? My 5mg of oxy ain't doing the trick, adding Diloted didn't help, 12.5 mkgm fentanyl patches aren't making themselves known (my pcp wants to keep increasing the dosage until I can feel them start working, but at least I'm not projectile vomiting with the patches yet, like I do with some of the pils) & my pcp wants me to try methadone (?) if the other stuff gives no relief.
At this point, I'd like it if the meds wouldn't give me such freakin' weird dreams!!!
