For those who do not know me, I had a fusion at L5/S1 June 5 then on June 17 had a second surgery due to staph infection.
Right now I have been having the EXACT same pain I had before surgery. The pain that shoots down my left leg into my ankle causing me to just buckle. The pain was gone finally after surgery and in the last week it has returned. WHY!!??!!?? What is going on? I am very worried!! I see my doc again Aug. 22 so I will let him know what is going on. But this pain is brought on by nothing, I could be in bed all day long and as soon as I get up BAM! I have it. I could be walking and BAM! I can be in the shower and BAM! So what I am getting at is this doesn't seem to be brought on by over doing it. It is intermitted (spelled wrong) just like before surgery, it comes and goes, but I always have a back ache and pain that is in my butt cheek to my thigh left side. That pain is always there, the shooting pain to my ankle is the intermitted part.
Oh my gosh I am so scared now, what could this possibly mean? My L4/L5 disc was slightly bulged prior to surgery and it wasn't worked on, could this have possibly ruptured or bulged even more?
Any help would be appriciated!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so so much!!
