12 weeks post L4-L5 TLIF-PLIF pain
Hi everyone! I haven't posted for a while as I was enjoying life for a while.
Started back to work eight days ago, and now have developed burning pain down my leg that is similar to what I had before. I work at an office, and sit the majority of the time - but I'm trying to incorporate walking into every 40 minutes or so.
The pain got to me yesterday, so I called the doctor's office. They have prescribed me nerve pain med (not sure if I can type it here), and it seems to help. I afraid that it is just covering the pain, and I may do something that I shouldn't do.
Life now seems to be like it was before surgery. Go to work - come home and take it easy. But, I guess I was going to be doing the same thing anyway (hope that makes sense).
Thanks for reading! And, I appreciate everyone's posts.
