Ok, first...I am not sure how to work these forums as I have never been on one. Let me know if I did this wrong. I came to this site looking for answers because I have the sneaking suspicion that my doc thinks I have lost my mind! I had PLIF on 4-5 two weeks ago today. My back actually feels really good (except when I first get up in the middle of the night). The bizarre thing is that the top of my right foot constantly has that feeling your skin gets when you freeze in the snow and it starts to warm up. (Sorry, not sure how else to describe that). It occasionally invites my calf to participate in the party! Does it get better? Is it a blood clot? Is it nerve damage?
I don't know if I was suppose to put these questions here, but am not sure how to work it all.
