Hi y'all! Let me ask you something. I'm about 6 months post L5S1PLIF. I'm recovering, but kind of slowly. I can do some things, but still lifting or bending really knocks me out. Sitting in a chair or standing for any length of time leaves me with a numb/burning right leg, foot & hip. Should this still be happening after 6 months?
Also, much time sitting straight up in the car makes me hurt like mad. But, riding on my motorcycle really doesn't hurt at all. If I go far, I still wear my TLSO brace and I feel pretty good at the end of a ride. I know, I know..motorcycles are dangerous (especially to us spineys), but it sure seems more comfortable to me. Anyone have any insight here? My bike is a long, low cruiser and my posture on it is sorta laid back with feet way out in front of me. Maybe that's it.
Peace out, y'all!
