Hi Peggy~ :wave:
It seems that I am having just about the same trouble as you. I am 6 weeks post op and now my legs, knees ,ankles have pain and swelling and my lower back hurts like heck. My PCP wants me to get an MRI of the brain, but since I am still in my collar, she has me going for a CT scan tomorrow. She also mentioned MS, but said not to be worried. It is something they must check for when your legs are involved in the pain.(worried?...who me?...) Anyway, I am pretty disgusted over this whole thing, but will just have to wait and see. My best to you and please keep me posted~
