Better yet,: see the spine surgeon again. A neurologist can help diagnose the problem but the treatment, whether it be physical therapy, injections, or a second surgery, would best be guided by the spine surgeon. These symptoms are not necessarily complications of surgery, they could be separate problems. Good luck.
