numbness and unintentional weight loss after lumbar surgery and fusion
I had lumbar spinal surgery L5 and fusion of same almost 9 months ago.  The original pain is gone and actually this was the second surgery I had, the first was late 2009 at the same area but no fusion at that time.  I lost about 18 pounds immediately after the surgery and to date I have lost a total of 24 pounds and it seems that its mainly around my hips and buttocks.  I also have a lot of numbness around that area and pain down my left leg and more at the knee area - the pain seems to be throughout my leg bone.  I have reported it to a few doctors but everyone is giving me the same answer which is that it is from the nerve pain I had before surgery from the herniated disc and that it will take time to be better.  What are your thoughts on this?
