9 days post op

Hi everyone.

After an agonising 18 month wait and scans/investigations I have 3 'new' anyeurysms. I had the larger one clipped on the 14/08 and discharged home on the 21/08 after a successful and uncomplicated op. I have headaches but that's to be expected but I was wondering if anyone has experience of excruciating pain in their low back and sharp pains down their legs. These pains occur mainly when I stand up or readjust my position and it takes my breath away and I can barely stand when they happen. They last a few seconds.

My GP told me it is due to lying down for a long period post op and blood pooling in my lumbar region. But the pain only starting 5 days post op and is getting worse.

Has anyone else experienced this. I've googled it but can't find anything.

Were you given support socks post op? Do you have any stiffness or solidity anywhere? Just thinking DVT...


Yes I was given socks and also some inflatable things that massaged my legs for 3 days after Also. DVT did cross my mind. I've seen a GP since who used to work in neuro and he said it may be blood in my spinal fluid. It has eased up over the past 2 days so fingers crossed it continues . Thanks for relying


Hi. Sorry to hear about your condition. You are going through a lot... The only treatments that works for me is craniosacral therapy. It seems that you may have a nerve pinched somewhere, or a blockage. It could be in your neck, middle back, lower back. Hope this helps.
