I am at 9 weeks post fusion and have been feeling pretty bad for the last week and a half. I did need to do some cleaning the week before because company was coming, the weather was a bit crazy and it was that time of the month so the first few days I thought the increased pain was probably just from that. I have just been resting since then, except for a 2 hour birthday party at the skating rink yesterday for my daughter.
I have had increased pain in my back and legs, tingling in my toes (particually the bottom of my feet and my middle toe is the worst), mild tingling in my legs as well as constant tingling and discomfort in my groin/buttock area (very hard to explain the exact feeling). Legs are weak and shaky and burning as well with occasional shooting sciatic type pain in both legs. Pretty much feels like pre surgery, ouch. I stopped taking the Vicodin at about 3 weeks and have only used PRN since then, these are now useless to the pain. The roxicodone havent even helped to tone things down either.
Its just so discouraging, maybe its all just normal healing. In everyones personal experience does this sound like something that warrents me to ask for an MRI? I will definetely be calling my OS in the morning, but I often dont know if I should push for something or not. Any input would be appreciated. I am open to suggestions to bring up to the doctor.
