i can understand before my fusion that i had sciatic pain in rt leg and butt area. pain went down from butt to knee. i had to supervise a football game fri night and as i stood and sat, pain was not only in rt leg and but but went into my left leg and butt down to the knww. also pain in lower back and in my surgery area from my L3 fusion in april. i know call dr and get mri, but before i do that i would like to get an idea why this is happening. why both legs and butt area now? i have had fusions in L4,5, and now 3. my L2 looked the best in june with no problems in it. what gives? any ideas. yes as i sit , i am calling ortho now!
thanks for the help
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
