massage or tens or ultrasound ever again after fusion?
Just curious, as pre- surgery I was getting massage 2-3 times a week along with Tens and ultra sound for pain relief though it only lasted anywhere from an hour to several. I'm just curious if I can say ever get a massage again, but obviously avoid my fusion area? I would give for a good leg massage, and and I know I can at least get that with a Medicare, BUT ALSO: with numbness and weakness in one foot and calf should I not let anyone even do that? I mean, can it cause damage if I can't feel.it fully or possibly hurt I am thinking?? I ask about the other treatments as I after this lumbar fusion I am going to try and avoid a cervical.one like the plague, and return to Esi's, cervical.traction, tens and ultrasound up in that area. Thanks & sorry if seems so dumb to.ask.
