I can say that the pain in my hips and legs I had before surgery is gone (hooray), but I'm not sure about the back pain because it's still pretty bad in and around the incision.
I was told that the muscle spasms after TLIF surgery is usually the biggest problem and I've had those as well. But has anyone experienced muscle spasms in the front of the stomach or abdomen post TLIF? Today's the first time I've had these and I'd believe it could be Mr.Bill coming to visit except he's already been here and gone.
What's your experience with muscle spasms after your TLIF?
Also, although I walk every day, I find that standing too much makes my back pain unbearable. Did you experience this too?
