Im curious. Since alot of our old "timers" are not here on the new site anymore. How many of you that have had surgery have leg pain??? Like siatica almost. Shooting pain down the leg, with some numbness in the toes????
I'v never ever had this before. Even before the first surgery or even after. Now with the 2nd PLIF L4-S1 I do.
I remember my lovely friend Amber who I am going to check in with had the same thing. It is now controlled with pain managment. It never went away.
Yes I am calling the Dr tomorrow and they will probably tell me to wait it out till my appt Oct 16th. As its probably the nerves healing. But it is so very painful especially if you have had it you know. And nothing takes it away.
My insurance does not cover lyrica so that's a no go at this time if they want me to try that.
plus my walking ACTUALLY WHAT WALKING??? That has not happened yet do to severe pain just from the hips down while doing so that freezes my legs like a rope is getting tied tighter and tighter. Its not muscular. That will be figured out sometime next month.
Anyways do not want to make this to long.
Just wanted to hear from others that had the same issue go on after a fusion.
Hope eve1 is healing well!!
