I've found, even after a few years, things are never without little blips to make me wonder what is going on with my body...when in fact, everything is ok and making the best of the new back I have.

Nonetheless, it is something to mention to your specialist if it keeps worrying you.
Christine, I had my surgery on 9th december and I had an epidural... (does that give me morphine). I went home on endone and panadol and had stopped endone at 3 weeks post op. Now I am not even using panadol... My legs are just annoying especially at night when I don't have many distractions... I don't know what to do... I am seeing my usual doctor (not orthopaedic surgeon) next week so maybe she can confirm what you said. I am not sure how give myself relief... I try voltaren but I am not having any pain, its just annoying feeling which makes me believe it is nerve pain or something from the op...
