I know there is a large variety or levels and hardware, but I would just like to know in general what it typically feels like.
My doctor said I shouldnt be able to feel anything with a 1 level fusion at L5-S1. I am 7 weeks post op TLIF and having tugging and poking feelings. Especially when I lay flat, sit back against a chair or reach my arms forward. I feel like something is pushing out the center. This is located mid inscision to about 2 inches above the top.
I am slightly concerend that I may have scar tissue or adhesions forming as this happened to my knee and shoulder. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Thanks a bunch,
