My surgery was november 18th 2008 for L4, L5, and S1 spinal fusion. I am still having left leg pain, especially in my calf and foot, and alot of pain at my tailbone. I know people may think I am crazy but sometimes I feel like I can feel the hardware, it feels like a bee sting or something sharp sticking in me at times. At 3 months I have not returned to work, I have an office job sitting 8-10 hours a day. My co-workers do not understand why I have not returned to work, I guess they think it is an overnight healing process. I have my 12 week check up on Feb 19th, the doctor may let me return to work then, not sure.
Has anyone else experienced this after fusion surgery? I am very curious to hear from you.
