neuropathy, hip and groin pain

Started by Peggysue on 06/03/2019 1:02am

I am 6 weeks post op L4-5; L5-S1 fusion. First 2 weeks was terrible pain. But I have developed left leg neuropathy and now left hip and groin pain. I am on gabapentin which has helped. I have 6 week follow up this week and hope to start PT but I’m not sure I am able. This new groin and hip pain is distressing. I am up at 1 am icing hip back and groin in an attempt to get some sleep. Any words of encouragement would help. What can I do to to speed recovery? My surgeon thinks this will all subside with time. But I am impatient and want to get on with life. Peggysue
