I think this is coming from your low back.
I would see a different orthopaedic doctor.

It's very low but I've had s1 and l5 fused so I'm assuming that's why it's lower I'm just concerned I have cramps in my legs most nights and burning in my feet. Also on the scar where I had knee replacement there is what appears like a bruise but it's a strange place to get a bruise and it's been there for awhile. My knee also aches again I'm on jurnista from my back and anti depressants I also have over the past 8months had stress pretty bad. Going through a custody case for my grandson whose mother is an addict.

I'm very sorry to hear about your grandson. That sounds difficult
In your case, I would see another surgeon
Get a second opinion. It never hurts
