I am new here, and most likely older than most as I will be 68 in March.
I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder.
As a teen, I had three spinal fusions of L4-L5. I don't remember much about the surgeries, but I do remember wearing a body cast to school and sitting between two boys for drivers ed. The worst.
I have had several surgeries including R total hip replacements x 3, L total hip replacements x 2, and many many more but I will stop there.
In November 2015, I had an eleven-hour surgery to correct my horrible scoliosis and flat back. There were a few complications but hey I was 66 years old.
Right after the surgery, I had nerve pain in my foot, the kind where you scream if the bedsheets touch it. Since then the nerve pain, numbness, and tingling have traveled up my leg into the outside of my hip.
I would really like to talk with someone who has experienced wide spread nerve problems after back surgery.
Thanks for listening.
