Changing symptoms and pain post op

Seven months post op (open lam and decompression lumbar, L1 thru L5 and Si), having done so well for 4 months, I seem to have totally relapsed and worse than pre op.. I cannot walk without use of a walker or even stand without holding on to something.. I am experiencing extreme stinging (like bee stings) from my right hip to toe.. that's a new symptom.. What is wierd is: When it occurs, I can point my toe down or bend it over and stretch the front of my shin and it immediately goes away.. My left leg feels like a heavy inanimate wooden post with no strength.. I have to manually lift it with my hands and arms to move my foot even a couple of inches when sitting.. I have been ruled out for DVT and my blood panels are normal.. My recent MRI shows a much improved image from my pre op one.. This can't be a normal part of the recovery process after this long.. like the damaged nerves just "waking up".. etc... Anyone else having similar experiences post op?
