Re: lumbar surgery

Yes, it is the L2 and L3 spinal nerves that can cause a lot of pain across front of thighs. When I had surgery at L2-3, I had no thigh pain prior to surgery, but I sure woke up with it! I was quite miserable for about 9 months post surgery, but it did go away eventually. The L2 spinal nerve was stretched and molested during the surgery and it took that long to calm back down.
