I had spinal fusion l4,5 s1 with cage and screws. When I woke up from surgery, I had no feeling in my legs and couldn't move them.. 3 days later I had to have emergency surgery, After having a cat scan and MRI. The surgeon left a bone fragment in that was pressing against my spinal cord and there were also blood clots that needed to be removed. My recovery is slow, it's been 6 weeks. I am on lyrica for nerve pain. The cramping in my legs are bad. I have bad numbness in my feet. My feet swell ridiculously when I am walking or standing too much. I have received home physical therapy and will start out patient therapy in 2 days. My doctor checked for blood clots in my legs due to the cramping and swelling, which came back negative. He told me now that I should see my PCP. My question is, is it possible that there is nerve damage? I have asked my surgeon to do an EMG but all he said was I need to get fitted for a brace.. I'm frustrated and want my life to get back to normal. I feel my doctor isn't addressing the issues as it should be. Help!!
