I had L1 S5 spinal fusion around 4 years ago which was a complete success. I had suffered Cauda Equina Syndrome and was very lucky to make a full recovery. My surgeon stated the L2 disc was not in great shape but he was reluctant to also fuse that due to the related loss of mobility.
Unfortunately I recently slipped and fell, hitting my lower back on a stone step exactly where I had my surgery.
I now have a lot of lower back pain, a return of sciatic pain down my left leg and fairly limited movement (can't pull my socks on etc).
My doctor has given me pain killers/anti-inflammatories and told me to rest but I am obviously very concerned I have caused further damage to my lumbar region.
Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated.
