It will be two weeks tomorrow from my second back l4 l5 surgery. Five years ago I went to hospital in pa with horrible pain shooting down the front of my left leg. The hospital;said
I needed back surgery but I was loaded with very large kidney stones in both kidneys. I had 5 Lipotripsy procedures which is ultra sound to break stones up then I had back surgery I was 41 and it was months of hell! I am now 46 and right before the holidays it happened again except pain was down my left but cheek down to the knee. They wont do kidneys till back is better this time. When I came out of surgery the back pain was better but now my left leg is cramping and my left foot feels like a frozen ice block. I have such numbness in left leg I am scared to death. My doctor is against pain meds he calls them stupid pills so I am using nothing but worthless ben gay on calf. I have saved many pets ducks, rabbits so my husband is so burdened by me down. I cant stop crying I am soooooooo scared I will never get my very busy life back. I was so glad to find this site but so saddened to hear of everyones pain. Thank you for listening to mine.
