Lumbar fusion cause sciatica
There are some causes of sciatica listed, but I am wondering if my surgery (L2-L3 Direct lateral Interbody fusion and minimally invasive posterior fusion), was in some way the cause of the terrible lower back, hip and down the left leg pain since 3 days post surgery...? I actually need more pain meds for the leg pain than the surgery done 21/2 weeks ago. Has anyone experienced this? Or have any answers for me? Will it go away with time, as the doctor implied?
