Hi I had a lumbar fusion on September 22, 3 weeks ago today,
I have been having some tingling sensations in my calfs and had charley horses in them for the past 3 or 4 days. Today I have had much leg pain, many cramps in my calfs and I noticed on one calf a vein that has been there all my life well it is deep dark blue almost purple and when you touch it, it is very painful. I am very concerned about this because, you know how you have a gut feeling something is not right, well this is one of them.
I am scared, has anyone ever had this happen to them or know anything about this I would love to get some information, as my physician's office is closed until tomorrow morning!!!
PLEASE PLEASE if you can give any piece of advice, something to do, whatever!!!! :??
