I had spinal fusion disectomy laminectomy four months ago at t12 l1. and my left foot was burning in pain right after surgery. I did not have this pain prior to surgery. I have had post surgical Mris and the doctor says he doesn't see any other compression. I've been in so much pain. I take percocets and lyrica but it really doesn't help. I am worried about damage to my nerves or spinal cord and I do not know what to do. I've seen so many other doctor including neurologist and neurosurgeons and they have not been able to diagnose me.
I realize this could be scar tissue but my pain showed up the day after surgery. My doctor says he didn't have to touch the spinal cord or thecal sac for that matter. I don't know why this nerve pain has been going on like this. It is unbearable and keeps me from doing things a s leading a normal life. I have to rest a lot and I'm always thinking about the pain.
Has anyone else experienced this ? What options do I have ? Other meds? Spinal cord stimulator ? Any insights would be appreciated
