I had a two-level fusion of my cervical spine almost a month ago and was diagnosed with congenital stenosis and incomplete spinal cord damage among a couple of other things. Before the surgery I often had bouts of sciatic pain but dismissed them as the issues with my cervical spine were rapidly deteriorating and I was urged to have immediate surgery (or risk paralysis).
Now, as I'm finally starting to feel better after my ACDF, the sciatic pain is returning with a vengeance. Radiating pain down my leg, and incredible calf cramps that awaken me in the night.
Have any of you dealt with multiple spine surgeries? Or were any of you born with a narrowed spinal canal and experienced deterioration in other areas of your spine?
