Severe Leg Pain When Sitting/Standing post fusion
I'm 10 days post-op L5-S1 posterior fusion for a right sided herniation. Initial had numbness of lateral right foot (which is worse than pre-surgical) and post op I had been doing well pain wise with mostly incisional and muscular pain. Recently though I began developing severe Right leg pain that starts in my hip and radiates down to my ankle, worse though in my thigh and calf. The only way I can truly describe it is that it is the worst cramp/muscle spasm causing increasing numbness in my foot. When lying, the pain immediately goes away, and only increases to severe when I'm either sitting and standing. No change if I'm wearing my brace or if I walk short distances.
Has anyone had similar episodes or known causes for such?
