Numbness & heavy feeling in legs

I had two level cervical fusion C5-C6 & C6-7 surgery in 2010 & now have C4-C5 impinging on the spinal cord. I am waiting to get approval for surgery. Has anyone experienced severe pain, numbness & heavy feeling down right leg? Can the pain I am feeling in my legs be caused by the disc in my neck?
