ever since having spinal fusion surgery at l5/s1, 4 years ago I have had terrible burning pain at the incision sites, bilaterally. I've had every kind of spinal block procedure including rf ablation with no relief at all. Therefore I'm thinking that maybe it's not a nerve problem. Is there anything else that can cause this deep burning as I've always been told that's indicative of nerve pain?
I had a fusion @ L5-S1 in 2/08 and I too have burning pains in my lower back, not at incision site, but actually where the plate is and also in the muscles, as my muscles are very, very tight. I do have nerve damage in both legs and have the burning sensation (along with other sensations) in my legs.
there could be numerous reasons this is happening. what type of doctors have you been to? please let us know -
