Back Problems board

Nerve pain usualy comes couple of weeks after the surgery.
I had twice done major multi-levels fusions with instrumentations, etc. And both times I experienced legs/feet/toes pain. Also bottocks and hips.
Sometimes both at the time, sometimes one at the time...
My last surgery was 7 weeks ago and even though my back pain is still intense, my legs and feet bother me the most.
I take Neurontin for the nerve pain, Percocet as a PK. And some other meds to help me through this tough times.

I can relate to you and I know how much it hurts. Unfortunatelly it can take up to 2 years for the nerves to heal. That is why your DR is not overly concerned, you have a long time to go before he can make anything of it.

Best of luck on your recovery!
