Lumbar fusion L3,L4,L5,S1

Started by ahtucker on 11/29/2019 6:38pm

Had surgery three months ago. I am NOT diabetic, I am 48 yrs old and have had pain down my right leg , right and left calves , numbness in toes worse in right foot, constant cramp in bottom of right foot and pain in areas where they put probes in my feet for the surgery . Any advice on is this possible nerve damage . Still having serious pain in lumbar region and difficulty walking very far or sitting or standing very long.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

It's been several years since my surgeries and nothing got better. Have you had then text your nerves in your leg with the pins. ? I have numb spots in right leg. After test my, L4 L5 NERVE IS DEAD. Tingling is the nerves trying to fire back up. That might go away. The pain that is still in lumber you will probably always have. I still have mine and it's gotten allot worse. Hang in there it's still early. Protect that back and be easy. Take care
