Hello all, first a big thank you to all who responded to my posts about my sister Debbe's TLIF surgery on 11/19/08, your suggestions were all very helpful. She is doing very well in my opinion. But she still has a lot of pain and numbness in her legs when she is lying down, which is the main reason she decided to do the surgery, so this is very upsetting and frustrating for her. But hopefully this will get better in time. The doctor did not have any answers for her about this, other than giving her a prescription for Lyrica which she did not fill yet because she is not sure if she wants to try it due to side effects.
Anyway she is to get a bone growth stimulator tomorrow. I was wondering if this is a normal amount of time after surgery to get it (four and a half weeks post-op) or is it too late to start it now? Again thank you all for your time and help.
