6 weeks post op with stabbing pain

It has been 6 weeks since my fusion surgery. On Sunday I rode in the car with my husband. I went to adjust my seat and the seat flew back really quick and it felt like I pulled something. Two days later when I get out of bed, from a laying down position, it feels like something stabs me in the lower back as I get up. What could this be? I talked to the nurse and she said I probably just pulled a muscle, since after surgery the muscles are still weak.


  • For me it turned out to be just muscle pain. The hardware that we have does a pretty good job of keeping things in place. But it doesn't make it any less scary when it happens! Just that feeling and then the Uh! OH! But it was just a muscle ache and went away with some relaxing and time.
