Hi Ron! Been wondering where you were at! Glad to see you posting and am glad to hear that you are working again! I will be praying that things get better as time goes by for you! I have problems standing on my feet a very long time also! So I know how you feel! Wishing you the best Ron and hope that in time things return back to normal for you! Keep fighting! Hugs
Hi Ron! Could be over doing it and your body was just not used to that much going and you notice the damage more because of the overdoing. Or you could be having a residual! Could be both. It it continues, I would suggest letting your doctor know about it! Sounds like it might be a mild residual though! Hope you feel better soon! With you working more than usual you might be over pushing some! Hugs!
Hi Ron! How strange you mentioned this! Before my surgery I had severe back pain and the Sciatic nerve was throbbing. I could not even sleep the pain was so bad. After the surgery. The back pain stopped and the sciatic nerve pain stopped but three weeks later after that surgery. I lost all feeling in my toes. My feet and ankles feel like dead flesh! Still no feeling in my feet. My arms got effected too! But my arms are starting to come back to life! Just so strange that we both had simular symptoms. I see a doctor at Duke soon and hopefully they will give me answers soon! Hugs
Hi Ron! That is good news that you got treated so quickly and did okay! I still question what happened to me after my spine surgery. Whatever happened back then tore me up! Still trying to get back on my feet and may never really get 100 percent normal again! But glad you are doing okay! Nice to meet you in here!
Hi Ron! Pleasure to meet you on the forum. I have been a complicated case! Due to past history of Lupus and then having a Thyroid go bad with cancer we still are not sure what happened to me after my spine surgery! I had previous nerve damage from my Lupus and a B-12 problem.
2006 I got ran over by an SUV in a mall parking lot. Have severe back pain and had Steroid Injection of the Spine. Got all numb and tingly after that Injection. But it only lasted that day.
May 14th 2008, I had a lumber laminectomy on 3 disk in the lower spine. L3 L4Land L5. All three disk were compressing the spinal cord. Have a few nerves rerouted away from the spinal cord. I actually did pretty good after the surgery except for an asthma attack. I developed alot of respiratory problems after the surgery. Landed in the ER a few times there and then on my 3rd week after my surgery. My nerves in my hands and feet went on fire! Got all numb and tingly and pain set in! It was horrible and scary. My left eye started going bonkers, part of my face was feeling strange. My neck felt like i was choking.
The spine surgeon once he saw me referred me to see a Neurologist and Rheumatolist since I had past history of Lupus. Still have Lupus! No spinal was even done! Just an MRI and NCV/EMG and that doctor only did my arms and went by the last EMG of my legs and they were never tested. He told me I had CIDP.
I am scheduled for Duke Medical Center on November 6th. Next week! It would really shock me if they tell me GBS! But not sure! They have to rule out Lupus as being the culprit and the thyroid issue.
All I have to say is after that spine surgery I had. It tore my body up! I got nerve damage all over now! Everywhere! The pain is now easing up some but it took a while and I am still not 100 percent normal now! Just recently had my thyroid removed and am hoping the thyroid is what caused my problems. We shall see next week what they tell me!
Welcome to the botched Spine Surgery Mysteries! Stacey in here is also another one that had a back problem and she started getting sick too! Will I have spine surgery again? NOT! Hugs
