Hip Pain After L-5 S-1 Fusion
A failed lamiectomy/diskectomy was corrected with a L-5 S-1 fusion. 2012 was pretty much a lost year. I was doing better, patiently fusing, when at 3.5 post op I started experiencing horrific left hip and thigh pain, as wel as pain in the L-1-L-4 region of my back. (all my pain had previously been on my right side.) A CAT scam revealed broad based bulging. I'm seeing my surgeon this morning and he will most likely order a mylegram.
Has anyone experienced this type of hip pain? If so, what was the cause? I had finally gone from a constant 10 without pain meds o a 3. Suddenly, almost overnight, I'm back to a ten. Thanks.s
