Hello all, I'm 39 days post-op from my Open TLIF. For the past 3 days if been having a stabbing / shooting pain in my back. It's on the lest side of the incision & it's not always there.
Usually comes when I sit down &I'm try to get situated into my chair. It also happens when i try to stand up. When it hits me it's like someone stabbed me with a knife & takes my breath away. I've also noticed my lest foot going numb while I'm sitting.
I'm not sire if it's supposed to be there or if it's not. I havnt called the doc cause it never seems to happen except on weekends. I have my 6 week post-op visit on Tuesday.
Just wondering if it was something anyone else has experienced. Scared & hoping I didn't do somthing to screw it up! Thanx
