Lumbar spinal fusion and laminectomy
I had lumbar spinal fusion surgery (L4/5) in May of 2010.  Ever since, I am experiencing numbness and tingling in my hands after walking on treadmill.  There is also numbness in my mid-upper back that is there all the time.

Hi Vicki,

Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post. I am sorry to hear about your painful symptoms.

Do you have a specific question?...Or are you just venting?

I don't think it is unusual to have some residual numbness following a major surgery. I am not an expert but it may be possible that the hand issues are a carpel tunnel or similar condition unrelated to your spinal fusion.

Be sure and consult with your surgeon to determine his thoughts and possible treatments. I hope you will let us know how you are doing. We'll look forward to hearing from you again.

Take Care,
~Tuck
