Back Problems board


Hello all

I haven't been on here for a LONG time. I have just a quick question. Has/does anyone experience cramping in the leg after surgery? I had my 2nd discectomy/laminectomy in May of last year L5-S1. I have some nerve damage in my right leg (feels kind of like freezing from the dentist). Anyway, I am having terrible cramping in that leg. I have had my potassium, magnesium, etc checked and everything is okay. Calcium level also ok. I cant figure out what it is all about. I just can't extend my leg in certain ways or it spasms with rotten cramps.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks....................Justine :wave:
