Upper inner thigh swelling anyone?

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,321
Hi spiney friends,
I am just wondering if anybody has experience swelling of the inner upper thigh?
I have had spine surgery a laminectomy decompression+ interspinous spacer (Coflex) at level L5 S1 for a ruptured disc at that level like 4 months ago after surgery my back pain decreased but my thigh pain increased a lot specially when sitting ... Doc keeps telling me that pain on the thigh is due to nerve damaged and that this will take time to heal but like 4 days ago my pain on the thigh increased more even while walking which hasn't happend before and also with a burning sensation then I looked in the mirror and notice the swelling on that area (inner upper thigh) Any thoughts and or advices or experiences about this if you could share I would thank you ...


  • I have not had the same exact pain that you have but I did have different weird pain after surgery. It took me about 1 year for the nerve that was compressed to heal. You are still very early in the recovery process so try and be patient. Sometimes we do get worse before we get better and hopefully it will be the same for you. Good luck and please keep us posted.
