View Full Version : Two Concerns, 9mos post-op

03-30-2006, 12:38 PM
I'm a new member here, I found it on yahoo and I was wondering about two situations.

First of all, I will start by saying I had Lumbar Fusion of L-1 L-2 and L-3 on June 13, 2005.

Here lately I have been noticing that my legs and feet have been falling asleep more frequently, like today I was driving and my right foot fell asleep while pushing the break/gas pedals, which has never happened before. And they will randomly fall asleep at awkward times like when I'm lying down or just sitting in a chair.

Another concern I have is i get shocking pains in my "numb" area on my back. Is this normal? These pains have just begun, and sometimes they can be very painful.

Please help!
