    cervical fusion and leg numbness

    Hi everyone, Im new to this forum so bare with me please. I had a C4 C5 C5 C6 operation in October 2011 ther surgoen trimmed away the protruding disc. Ihad pins and needles in my finer and thumb that never went away and i still have to this day. I never got any better after yhe op. The pain i had in my neck over time grew worse, i had spasms in my arm, then my middle finger began to stay closed when the others had opened. I thought i had trigger finger and returned to my doctor who refered me right back to a surgeon, a different surgeon then the first i had another MRI and needed a second op this time with a fusion it was now march 2014. The op went good and i recovered well although nothing got rid of the pins and needles in my finger and thumb but i can live with that and sleeping on my left side still remains impossible. But for the last 5 or so months i am gettin a numbness with pins and needles in my thigh that is getting progressivly worse and becomes more noticable when i am at rest. This sensation covers the whole outter side of my thigh and never goes away. Has anyone else experienced this.
