Hello everyone. I haven't posted in a while, so I will give just a little history. I recently had anterior fusion at L4-L5, L5-S1. I am now about 8 weeks post op. I feel that my surgery was a sucess. I went for check up with neurosurgeon and he said that everything appears to be healing as planned. I am only having one problem: I am having severe pain in my hips, I did not have this pain pre-op. It really feels like my bones are aching. As you can imagine I am not getting much sleep. The pain medicaion, heat therapy, muscle relaxers don't seem to help. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what you can do to reduce it.
