I have had three lumbar surgeries in the last five years, my last one being the biggie... (big for me) I had fusion and revision of L4 L5 S1 rods, screws spacers, and removed alot of scar tissue, and bone. I am 6 months post op and find that I am getting a lot of cramping in my feet and legs. it does travel from the left buttock down, but not the right, just the right foot and ankle. Does anyone else experience this type of pain , makes for a lot of sleepless nights, I really need a fix to this problem, heat pad helps but wondering if anyone has tried meds for this problem.
2009 discectomy/laminectomy L5-S1
2013 revision and discectomy/laminectomy /forimanotomy L4-L5
2014 Fusion and hardware L3-S1
