Severe pain to back and legs

I had a spinal fusion back surgery done last year in March of 2012. I recently have been getting injections to the thoracic spine. I just recently had one on Friday and today is Sunday and I am experiencing some extreme difficulties. I am in severe pain and my legs are completely numb. I only walked maybe maybe 2 feet to my bathroom and now I can not walk. Any time I try to stand up I end up falling right down.I also have been having severe pain in my lumbar spine area as well. I am unsure of what I should do at this point. The pain is just unbearable. I have also been having short lasting fevers. If any one could please give me any advice as to what I should do that would be wonderful.


  • If you are unable to feel your legs or control them, then its time for the ER as that is an extreme reaction. If you can physically walk but its too painful to do so, then that's different and I'd suggest calling the ortho/neuro on call to get his/her opinion as to what to do. Also, what is a "short lasting" fever?
