Can a spinal block 5 days previous cause hip pain, leg cramping and weakness in one leg? Also shivers


Posted by susanmp

My husband had a TURP procedure last week and in addition to general anesthetic, he had a spinal block.  He since then has had severe pain in his left leg/hip with some cramping in the leg.  He is also experiencing strong shivers.  He won't call his doctor to see if this is a result of the spinal block and/or if it will get better on its own.
