Hello all: I wonder if anyone with spinal fusion surgery has suffered from painful and swollen feet (and somewhat legs)? On 7/11 I had a T3-sacrum and the pelvic fixation operation, The pain I felt around the scoliosis curves (basic crunching of spine) is gone and I''m doing PT and trying to learn how to walk a bit straighter, BUT since shortly after surgery, my feet are killing me. It does seem like typical plantar fasciitis which I was diagnosed with two years prior to my spinal surgery. the difference is, both feet really hurt and the pain wraps around the feet and into ankles. I get a bruising on the left ankle that comes and goes. I am in constant contact with physician's assistants but don't see my surgeon again for a month. AT first they say 'sure the swelling could be from the surgery' then they say 'it's not likely it's from the surgery'. What I want to know is whether anyone with this type of surgery has had painful and swollen feet,
And if so, what happened?
