    That is a good question for your doctor. There are no doctors here and we can not diagnose or give medical advice.

    I pray you can find answers and relief soon.

    I am sorry you are experiencing this. You will need to discuss this with your doctor. There are no doctors in this WebMD Back Pain Community. We are a support group of lay people who have experience with back pain and spinal issues. It is against the rules for any of us to diagnose or give medical advice.

    I pray you can get answers and relief soon.

    Hi and welcome -

    I am sorry you are having these pains and symptoms - it's a shame your surgeon didn't go over everything with you.

    I have a lot of friends that have a part of their body that is amputated (leg/arm/finger/toe etc) and have heard the same story - they still feel their part of the body is still there. still have sensations (itch etc) and/or out of no where uncontrolled jumping of leg/arm etc.

    My spine surgeon does a "Flat Panel Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant" to send false signals to the brain that there is no pain and he has done this for a lot of patients that have lots limbs as one of the most painful part is the nerves endings still hurting.

    Please contact your surgeon and go over everything with them as to what you should expect etc. This is part of healing process they should have gone over with you.

    Hope you can get relief and questions answered. Keep us posted~~
