I’m fused at l5-s1 over a year ago and having new l5-s1 dermatome neuropathy?

I’m fused at l5-s1 over a year ago and having new l5-s1 dermatome neuropathy.. Last xray the hardware was fine. No injury. Woke up with a numb foot and leg and ER advised it’s the l5-s1 nerve dermatome. I have no disc there as it was removed. What could cause the new symptoms to appear literally over night?

Hi..
You should first of all get a spinal MRI scan done to rule out the most probable cause of the symptoms..
Although it seems related to L5-S1 only bit still a confirmation is first needed..

Hope this helps..
