I am fairly new to this site and this is my first posting of a new topic, so hopefully I posted on the right board. I am currently about 6 weeks out from a 2 level fusion, l4-s1. My husband will usually rub my back and legs at night to help with the pain. He stays away from the incisions though. But last night his hand brushed against one of the incisions on the right side of my spine and it sent sharp shooting pains and the worst feelings all over my body. From my head and to every extremity. I mean it was like he just lightly brushed over it, no pressure what so ever. Does anyone know what this could be?
