Lynne, I'm sorry he's still suffering so much. I had hardware removed last September, too, and have had burning in my feet since then that I didn't have before that. It seems pretty clear that there's nerve irritation and it takes a long time to calm down. But mine doesn't seem nearly as bad as your boyfriend's. It sounds like his is escalating. I have days when it's worse than others, but it's not unbearable.

I wonder if they would be willing to repeat either the EMG or the MRI, maybe at an MRI site where they can do it in different positions. I wonder if he had it lying down, the nerve just didn't show up as pinched, but if he was sitting or standing, it would. All of us spineys know that a change in position can change everything!

I hope the surgeon looks at the conflicting reports and decides to get to the bottom of it. I wish you both the best as you work through it all. I know it's tough for both of you.
