Spinal fusion @ L4-5 level
I had this surgery in 2004 and first noticed numbness in my left toes a year later. It is now 2012 and i have been trying to get answers for the past three years without much hope. For the past couple of years the numbness, tingling and twitching has increased to my entire left leg with occasional pain.
I have had both neurosurgeons and Orthopedic to examine me and they suggest nothing but live with it. I'm 67 years old and i think that if I was younger they might have said something different. i welcome any suggestion you may have.
