Has anyone thought they were doing well post fusion only to find that the pain & nerve symptoms come back? I am 14 weeks into recovery & I am experiencing an increase in pain (worse than pre surgery) & constant sciatic nerve pain down my left leg. What bugs me most is the nerve pain was gone post surgery until now! ~X(
Do you think my hardware has shifted? I am debating calling in for an appointment but would be interested if the relapse is a "normal" part of recovery?? :S
The only change is that I returned to work & am sitting & driving more than I was.
