  • I have only had surgery on my lower lumbar. It was 360 fusion on L4-S1 on 1-20-2010.
  • It looks like we (charry, babyruth, dnice, factoryrat,and maybe sassy411) all have issues at L5 S1. Brenda, I wonder if you are really having the same thing just higher up due to your issues higher up L2 3 4.
    Sorry you all are experiencing this too, but glad to see that I`m not abnormal (G)

  • Several years ago I had a lot of surgery on my one foot which I had broken. Especially at night it felt like the foot was in a puddle of water and I, like so many have already said, would keep checking on my foot for I knew it just couldn't be wet. What I did was to keep a thin sock on that foot at night for it reduced the sensations I would feel (sort of numb the foot) plus it kept the foot warm. Over the years in did get better and is only a litle sensitive these days.

    My hands and feet are generally cold to the touch (I have raynauds phenomenon), but this is different. When I touch the foot it feels the same as my other (just cool )to my fingers. This feeling is inside I guess. It feels like my foot is incased in an ice block which has partially melted ( wet feeling ). It isn't a feeling that I have all the time, but comes and goes. Do you get this?

    Not the same thing, I guess. My feet used to feel wet all the time, but they tended to perspire, for some reason they don't perspire at all anymore, even in desert heat. I don't know why not.

    My hands are never cold, my feet are always cold, somewhat cold to the touch but not as cold as they feel internally.
  • Hi,

    Thanks all for your comments, long time lurker, first time poster here. Lately I've realised my affected foot is permanently cold, or a lot colder than the unaffected one. However, skin sensation is exactly the same on both legs! It's so odd. I wish someone sold a heated pair of slippers!

  • I have cold feet do the injury of lower back.. is there any why for relief?.. I've been using a heat pad.
  • I have been having a feeling on my left hip lately as well, it all of a sudden will feel cold/wet. So strange as it comes and goes out of nowhere.
