    What kind of operation? Is the pain down the backs of the legs into the calves? Or? Does it start from the bottom of the buttocks? Was it as spinal operation? I take gababentin as well for leg pain. I find that tramadol is a joke for pain....Most of my nerve pain in legs is coming from discs pressing onto nerves. Also, even though I have had three spinal surgeries I had a chiropractor advise I had a tilted pelvis and uneven pelvis I had minor manipulations to help even out the pelvis and man what a relief to the legs n hip. I can't keep doing this as I am herniated up in my back at various levels now and some fusions.....Do you have bulging discs???? Did you get your steriod injection directly into a disc???? curious............Sherrie

      The operation was to remove a cyst near the testicle, The pain is from the back of my legs, top to bottom. Level of pain on a daily basis is between 9/10. I  couldn't agree more that the tramadol are a joke, as for the other medication it just makes me forgetful and have nightmares, The steriod was injected behind the testicle and take 10 day to take effect, but has done nothing... Nerve Pain is'nt a nice thing so i feel for you and hope you get better soon... Mark

      Mark ;

       

      Have you thought about having your back looked at? or going to a Chiropractor? Does your back hurt....often nerves from the back press on the sciatic and causes horrifying pain....could you have a bulging disc? I am having a epideral this week into my L3-L4 and man...what a relief on the legs at least for a while....then it wears off on a few months...but it gives great relief...steroid injection into the herniated discs pressing on nerves shrinking them down....just a thought....praying for your legs.........sherrie

      Hi Mark,

      I have a very similar problem. I to had a cyst removed from my left Epiditymus. The day after surgery I awoke to find both (especially) legs were numb on the outside of my calf. They numbness burned and felt like needles. It kept spreading and getting worse to the point it feels like a wild animal is tearing my flesh away. After several months of DR's acting like I was insane I finally got in to see a Neurologist. They did an EMG, and conduction study. It showed I had sever axional and reflexive nerve damage. They tried to blame my back for the proble but the MRI showed it was completely normal. THe neuropathy and nerve damage is constantly getting worse. And the testiocular pain is enough to make me throw up. It all started the day after my surgery, but none of the Dr's seem to have the balls to just say it was the surgeon. Did they ever figure out what happened to you, or give the diagnosis a name? I have been at this for just about one year now, and still no end in sight. Hope you are doing well, and I anxiously await your reply.

      Hello, Just had my 4th MRI scan awaiting results but I'm still in severe pain day & night it's just flipped me 360 degree's. The consultant think I may have a muscle wasting disease, but it's the none knowing which hasn't help as this has been going on for a long time, my legs feel like I've been running a marathon & my testicle is like having severe tooth ache none stop, ive been having steroid injection's which help a little but only lasts for a few months, had emg tests but everything seemed ok and they have decided to do a biopsy which I'm still awaiting.. I understand what you going through but you just got to keep pressing on as much as you can, but it's tiring and mentally draining.. The doctors will never admit they are wrong but we know different. I've start wearing compression and recovery tight which athlete wear and it's help me loads.. Plus hot water bottles on legs will help also. Hope you find some comfort and I find prayer really help too! Kind Regards Mark READ MORE
