Depends: If these symptoms were there prior or even after your back surgery, you should see your back surgeon and consult. These are obvious nerve symptoms and despite your back symptoms may be resolved, more distal symptoms may persist. If these symptoms are new, they may be local (tarsal tunnel syndrome-look it up) or yet originate from your back.

Fusion: These are definite nerve compression symptoms. See your surgeon for assistance.
