righ thigh pain

I have had three operations on my back - L5 SI - the last one in 2008 was a fusion. The doctor found my nerve had been damaged and said the prior surgeon may have cut it during the surgery. He said there was a neuroma on it andit was extremely swelled. After that surgery they told me the nerve was perminately damaged and there was nothing they could do. I have tried everything, nerve blocks, steriod injections, and a spinal cord stimulator (which did nothing). My calf is always twitching and I am in pain every day. I just had a brain tumor (acustic neuroma) removed in May and during my time off, I slipped and fell on my hillside. Since that time, my right thigh has been burning and hurts to touch. I went to my PCP, they did an x-ray and found one of my screws in my fusion was broken. My surgeon said the fusion was ok and my thigh pain may be due to another disk issue. Anyone have problems with burning in their thigh from the hip to the knee?
