As most of you know I just had a posterior min invasive l4-s1 fusion on 7/8. Immdiately when I woke up my right leg was in unbearable pain- you could not even touch it. My left leg hurt as well but not that bad. Oh, and I also had a lump on my rt leg. My leg pain never gets better- I leave on Lyrica (sp?) this causes me to hev blurry vision so I get off almost right away. I have been walking quite a bit- even with the leg pain, up and around the house, outside etc... I even have stairs to my bedroom which I do several times daily (usually causes me a ton of pain in my legs) The raised potty seat even hurts me- sometimes I am in so much pain from my legs I cannot get off myself.
BTW- I spokw with my doc on thurs to ask about the leg pain and did he think it was a clot, he said no.
Today, I cannot even bend my leg barely 45 degrees and the lump is still there. I can barely walk. The pain and lump has been in my thigh- the pain is not going below and into the knee too. It is visably noticable my husband says.
So, do you think that this is just nerve pain? I mean my left leg is still hurting as well.
