I was part of this forum at the old site when I had my surgery 14 months ago. Everything has been great through the recovering until now. In June my doctor told me I was fused and cold do any thing. I've been going to the local community college taking auqacise and art classes. When the last semester started I took welding, creative metals, drawing and design....really having fun but it was too much too soon. The swimming ended because of the weather so really no exercise besides 2 days a week working in the welding shop 6 hours each day and cleaning a 3000 sq ft house. Anyway I'm having some intermitent nerve pain in my legs and a deep soreness in the low back that can be quite painful at times. Needless to say I'm disappointed everything was going so well. The doc says finish the semester then he'll do a CT scan as he says there a slight halo around one of the screws, "Worst case senerio we have to go in thru the front and stablize the fusion" :SS
Has anyone else experinced this?
Could it be from not swimming?
Or is the welding too much too soon?
I'd really like to here you're input.
