Hi guys, it's been a while since I posted. I post a little history here. I have question some of you might be able to shed a little light on.
I have a fusion in April of 2008, L5-S1. Prior to this, I had two previous surgeries on the L4 and L5. However, this was my first and I hope my only fusion. I did well after all three surgeries. And IMO I did really well after my fusion. Anyway, I know sciatic pain when I feel it. But, what I'm feeling lately seems odd, not like the pain of sciatica. However, I do wonder if it's sciatic. I don't really have pain in my butt except occasionally when I feel like I have a slight charlie horse there. My lower right leg from the knee down keeps going numb. Both when I stand and when I lay. After standing, it stays numb for a while when I sit. But it's brought on by standing and lying. And since my surgery, if feels like I'm stepping on NAILS with my big right toe, recently I started feeling it in my left big toe. So, I guess that's two questions. And yes, I know I need to call my surgeon and I will, but right now I want to see what others have to say about it.
