I had a laminectomy/disectomy 8/19. I've done GREAT until about 5 weeks ago. I stood up from sitting leaned back in a stretch like and felt a sharp, hot pain. Since then things have started getting progressively worse. My leg is starting to twitch again, my leg is spasming from my butt to my calf, my last 2 toes are tingling and my back has this annoying ache or straight up knot of pain.
I went to see my surgeon last week hoping he'd say it was just an arthritis flair up, give me prednisone and send me on my way. Nope. He's concerned - and the facial expression alone has me worried. The prednisone hasn't done much if anything.
My question is has anyone else experienced this? I'm 10 months out from surgery and was living my best life and now am seeing myself start to slip into that hurt, sad self again.
I've got an MRI scheduled, I just figured I'd see if anyone had any ideas before I go down the dark Google hole.
