Hey Everyone, It has been a while since I posted last. My surgery was December of last year so I am almost 10 months out. I came through with the surgical post op wonderfully and healed very nicely through the months following, but lately I am feeling some symptoms that are worrisome to me. One spot on the top of my left thigh feels like it is on fire from time to time on a daily basis and some numbness in my toes. I dont go back to my NS until December for my one year check-up. Also, I am still on Loratab 5 mg once per day. Is that normal to need pain meds this far out. I find that I start aching if I dont take one each morning. Any suggestions??
