I had my fusion nov. 30, and things are way better than what I expected after the surgery. The aches and pains are helped alot by walking, and the ones that are left I'm sure are because I cant bend lift or twist, thus no stretching them parts.
But I am truly getting sick of the itching on my calves, ankles, and feet. I can't reach tem to scratch them, and a pointy stick doesn't cover enough area. My poor wife is constantly having to scratch them for me. It's almost like poison ivy in it's severity.
So my questions are, does anyone else itch like this, and what do they do about it? I am going to rub cortizone cream on it, but it definitely feels deeper than just the skin, and doubt it will help. Yes, it started after the surgery.
