Was wondering if anyone who has had a fusion and had difficulty w light exercies post-op? I am 3 months post lamis of L3-5 and fusion with plates and screws of L4-5.
Had a difficult post-op course in hospital w excessive bleeding, severe anemia (Ht 7.5) and respiratory arrest with a fall on 1st post-op night.
Have been attempting to gradually increase activity--walking is great and now even run the sweeper; but if i swim or do leg lifts--have left sided back pain the next
It's really getting frustrating as I thought that I would be further along by now. Would appreciate feedback, thanks in advance!!
