I am glad the facet
joint has now been fused, and the implant
is no longer causing you trouble.
As for the symptoms you are describing, the lateral femoral nerve fain, the weakness
, the fatigue, they are non-specific and troublesome.
My suggestion is to rule out the following:
1) Nerve damage
from the surgery
2) Rheumatological work up to see if there are any serum
markers that are elevated to reveal an underlying inflammatory/rheumatologic disorder
3) Rule out any underlying infections
In this category i think you should look into naturopathy, acupuncture
to get you moving. All of these play a role in keeping one whole, and getting their insight can only be helpful.
If u have more questions, please make an appointment with me any time convenient to you.
