I've posted here before. I had my back surgery L4-S1 November 23 of this year. It's been very difficult for me I'm 38 years old. Before my surgery I had major back pain and pain that radiated down my left leg with numbness and tingling. And weak on my left side but I was able to still do things. I've had such a hard recovery. I had pnemonia literally 3 days after coming home. Now I have an ear infection in both ears. I am now having pain in both of my legs and weakness. I'm also having an issue with incontince . I literally can't feel when I have to go. It's so embarrassing to have to wear a brief and poise pads. My husband is very understanding and supportive but to me I feel useless and a burden to him. Has anyone suffered these issues and does it get better? I have an MRI coming January 20th to hopefully find out why and they can help me.
