Five months ago was was a typo the procedure was Aug 26 or 27th. It was to correct an abces between two vertibra, I don't know if it was drained or lanced I remember feeling several hard taps during the procedure. The warmth is both my calvs and thighs. I first noticed this several days after the follow up with the Dr. about the first of Oct, he forcefully pated my back several times during his exam. I had finished with IV antibiotics about a week before.

This is related to the spine

the nerves are damaged and send this warm feeling to the legs

It is not treatable. It might get better on its own though
