    Hi Dr Corenman,

    I am 29 years and I had a 360 interbody spinal fusion of the L5/s1 december 17. Since my fusion I have had continued back pain stabbing to the left side of my back, severe numbness/Cold and nerve pain down my left leg. Sending my second toe completely numb and cold. I feel like I am not getting better to any point. Would you have a idea what could be still causing this.

    Thank you

    You need to explain what your symptoms were initially to lead you to a back surgery and then compare to what your symptoms are now. Use location, pain intensity (0-10) and symptoms changes (“was mild numbness here but now new numbness in this new spot”).

    Has your surgeon told you that you have a solid fusion and do you have a CT scan noting a solid fusion? Do you have a new MRI after the surgery?

    Dr. Corenman
