Back pain flare ups after ALIF (8 months post op)
I had my fusion on L4/5 back in December, and the recovery has been VERY slow..infact my OS said I was "a little behind" in my recovery but he didnt seem overly concerned. My restrictions have been lifted and I pretty much am back to my regular activities but if I do too much my back lets me know.
Up until now if I over did it, my back would hurt that day but improve very quickly (by the next day)but 3 days ago, I tripped over my small yorkie :''( and had to "catch" myself. From that point on I have had pain similar to pre surgery.
Has anyone else had a similar flare up post fusion? I am trying to stay positive but after days in considerable pain, its wearing on me. ~X(
Any suggestions or comments?
