Eric.
Get back to the hospital. ASAP.
You could be leaking spinal fluid.
They may have nicked the fluid sack and stitched it.
Or there could be a build up of blood and fluid in the L5 area.
This will put pressure on the nerves to your legs.
And can cause swelling.
Get your BUTT back to the hospital.
Now.
I'll pray for you.
Ray.
Go by ambulance.
Keep us informed when you can.
