This is my first time on a forum & I am glad I have found it. I had a spinal fusion on the 13/08/14. I had severe back pain and had been on heavy meds for a long time. Decided surgery was my only option going forward and I knew the risks but I am in such a bad way now. My left leg nerve pain is horrendous, I can't explain it and no-one seems to understand that one minute you are having nerve spasms the next my foot is numb. Also my leg keeps giving way. I have fallen getting out of the shower, going to the bathroom etc. If anyone has been in this position or is going through the same thing post surgery please message me or reply to this post. I am 27 nearly 28 have two young children and at the moment feel like I made the biggest mistake of my life having this surgery.
