In 2005, I had two lower back surgeries within five weeks of each other. It was at L5S1 level. These surgeries did not help much and I continued to have left leg pain. It really got also worse in Oct.09 and I saw my neurosurgeon and had a fusion done Dec. 4 09. This was a hard surgery to get past, and I got a feeling its going to be a long time. I still have some pain in left leg with mostly foot numbness. I just started having problems with hip pain (no bone graft was done) to no explanation to why. I also am now hurting with nerve pain in my right leg. I have never had the pain in this side, so that scares me that something else is pressing on a nerve. I also have a popping noise in my fusion area that hurts. When I shift my hip like moving one leg up in the bed or just walking it happens. The doctors PA in the office has no idea what this is and has never heard of it. I also have electrical zapping all up and down my legs, with the left being the worse at night when I am tyring to go to sleep....this drives me NUTS! I am on Trileptal/Neurontin for this.... If anyone reads this and has any input, please do so...
