29 days out from l5/s1 fusion with instrumentation
Looking for other ppl to share their experiences with who have gone thru what I have. Feb 22nd I underwent this surgery. It was 6 hrs long, spent 3 days in the hospital and have a 5-6 incision. Upon hitting my 4 week mark exactly post-op, my pain levels dropped to a 1 or 2 and I felt the best I have since my surgery. Went walking yesterday nite as usual for my theraoy. Got about a mile in. The pain in my back began. I have a back brace I wear when I'm up moving. Its begun to make my incision and infusion site burn when I wear it for long periods when I'm walking. Anyone else experience this? And my lower back is so stiff which I expect but the pain has come back and it hurts to sit up, roll over in bed, etc. When will it finally just be those 1 and 2 days continuously? Plz share ur stories, I need ro hear other's exopeiences of their recoverys. I no longer suffer from the nuerological deficits which led to surgery. Thank u in advance and greatest blessings to u all!!!!
