Back Problems board

Excellent news. I am delighted things looked so good.

Maybe you were favoring one side prior to surgery. Is this hip on the same side of your pain?

My problem too is one I never had prior to surgery. My right leg hurt down the back all the way into the foot. That pain was gone and I knew it right away. When the PT came in the first day and worked with me a little bit while I was in bed, she instructed me to do what I think they call a "quad set." As soon as I did it, I felt pain like I had never experienced and eventually started crying so hard that my son ran to get the nurse. Next thing I knew, they were adding morphine and valium to my IV. And I've had that same pain, on the front of my thigh, more or less, ever since. Very annoying!!
