Hello my name is Tee, I have had multi level fusion done a month ago and I am having some problems...
I had a L4 & 5 fusion and was in bad pain continuously...my rt hip down to my thigh was always hurting on the 10 pain scale. They did a block 3 weeks after surgery and it only got worse. Now the pain runs down to my calf. They are scheduling a second surgery now and im worried. The C.T. scan they did showed that the Sciatic nerve is being pinched.
Also im having hot flashes and then become freezing right after and have never done that before. The surgery site is very, very hot to the touch. I asked the doctor about it and he said that it was hot because it was healing. (???)
Does any or all of this sound reasonable to you? Please help me with these questions.
