I don't know what the deal is this time. I flared up in severe pain 2 days ago. I was put back on Torodal for 5 days. I toughed it out and just about crawled into PT. They were real easy on me and were concerned about me making it home in one piece (I'm just 8 minutes away).
I got home and noticed my left leg is hurting all the way down to bottom of my foot. I have had slight nerve pain in that leg in the past, but it never went below the knee. The right leg has always been the biggest problem. I noticed that my hip on the left bothered me at PT and they said it was maybe the way I sit, taking weight off the right side; I tend to lean to the left to stay off the the sciatic nerve.
Is this worth bringing to the attention of the doctor, or should I wait a few hours to see if it goes away. My concern is that a new problem is starting up. Maybe it's nothing important.
I'm 3 months post op TLIF/laminectomy with more downs than ups in my recovery. I felt decent when being on steroids and Toradol; I can tolerate things more and feel like I'm living on borrowed time while on those meds. I'm currently on Fentanyl 50, Norco, Valium 10, Neurontin, and Naproxen. Usually the meds that I take work well, but I've had a lot of flare ups.
I appreciate any suggestions,Thank you
