My husband had a L5 /S1 fusion at the end of february. He seemed to be recovering pretty well for a while and now has chronic hip pain that is prohibiting him from daily activities and is causing at times debilitating pain. I am just looking to hear from anyone who had a similiar experience and can share with me how they overcame it or why it is happening.



  • I am sorry to hear of your husbands pain. It is still very early on in the recovery process after such a major surgery. I know that I was in severe pain for about 8 or 9 months after my surgery and worried that the surgery had worsened things but I did eventually get better. You need to remember that everything is repositioning internally and he may have different pain for awhile that hopefully may not be permanent. Has he talked to his doc yet? That will be the best place to get answers to his specific questions. Good luck and keep us posted.
  • hi and welcome to the forum! :H we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. your husband is very fortunate to have you by his side. =D> i am sure he needs you now more than ever.. sometimes we compensate and start to walk different which affects our hips. i don't know but talk to your doctor about this.. :-C good luck!! stop by anytime! :D Jenny :)
