L3-S1

I had surgery July 28,2011. I had severe pain in my right side going down my leg my right foot felt like a block of wood. I had pain in my upper left leg. I had fusion from L3-to S1 with a laminectomy. I have fallen 12 times scince surgery.
I have had xrays but the surgeon says everything looks okay for now but if something is loose may not know for several months. After the first month had no leg or foot problems but now am starting to have pain in my right chin again.I am now a little afraid still have the back pain but not as bad as it was but DR says may take six months to a yr.

I'm new at this but glad to find there are others out there to talk to.
