Along the lines of this thread, yesterday I was removing a car battery from the rack at walworld, and when it came down I felt a burn in my lower left back. This morning, I can barely walk, left leg goes from cold to needles to extreme sharp pain. Something felt weird in the willy area and sure enough, total ed which wasn't there before and continence is going away. To the hospital I go today for sure.
I had always had some slight bouts of left hip pain since surgery and have been treated for it for 3 yrs. PT and low dose pain meds mostly.
Interesting post...I tried ripping a door of the neighbor's van the other night (his wife is in an electric wheelchair and the doors were jammed and she was stranded inside the van. I really, really pushed my body as much as I have since surgery and the next few days I had a slight bit of incontinence and I woke up with soaked underwear today. I'm not really all that concerned as I probably pulled or stretched something that I believe will go back into place but it was a reminder that even 5.5 months after I'm not exactly fully back even though I felt I was a few months ago.
And... I would add all of my leg numbness today seems to be a result of not walking on one particular day after my surgery. I remember it was the 2nd week of the NFL season and I was glued to the TV nearly the entire day and didn't walk like I had all the other days. My leg became numb in the thigh and I've struggled with it ever since.
