Thigh pain: My first answer is missed hip arthritis. This causes pain from groin to knee, worse getting up from sitting. Commonly missed by spine surgeons too focused on abnormal MRI and not performing a complete exam. Not intentional, just happens. If fusion has failed, this could also cause pain into groins/thighs. A good exam and studies including x-rays would be helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What can cause my husband's left leg numbness after cervical spine surgery and lumbar spinal injections?
Leg numbness: The location of numbness is important to document and also the type of cervical surgery. If he had posterior surgery, the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve can be compressed due to the prone position and numbness can occur along the lateral thigh. Nerve injury is a potential for any spinal injection but extremely rare. ...Read more
ESI: Esi is indicated for arm pain or leg pain associated with a pinched nerve—whether disc herniation, bone spur, or spinal stenosis. Any of these problems usually respond well, at least temporarily, to esi. If you do not have an MRI to confirm, then there is less ability to predict success with this injection. No harm in trying if your doc thinks it might be the spine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri-t12-l1 l4-l5 l5-s1 disk protrusion no nerve impingement or spinal stenosis. Left low back buttock leg pain ×3 wks. Foot cold tingling. Worse when sitting standing walking. 10 days steriod no help?
Delaying in this: Circumstance isn't advisable. Your symptoms suggest impingement, either through direct nerve compression or swelling around the nerve. In any event, a discussion with your neurologist/neurosurgeon about an epidural steroid (or transforaminal steroid) injection should happen sooner, rather than later. Although a cold, numb foot may be related to other (vascular) problems, nerve problems are primary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.
Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain. As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
