Severe Leg Pain After Laminectomy
As some of you already know, I had a Laminectomy on Thursday. When I was in the hospital I only really noticed that I was in severe pain at the incision site and in the bottom of my back. When I got home I started having leg pain that's been worse than before surgery. It's a sharp/electric pain that starts in my hip or upper butt area and goes to the back of my knee. It's a severe pain that's worse than my back. It seems to be getting worse, not better. I've walked around the house some but nothing more than that since I've been home. Is this normal or should I be concerned. I thought I'd wake up from surgery and have some incision pain and the rest would be gone but it's actually feeling worse. Any ideas?
