Hi all! I am about 4 1/2 months post 360 L4-5 fusion and I am still swelling!
I am back at work. Today I had significant abdominal swelling. My abdominal insicion is horizontal and from just right of my navel to my left hip bone. I have swelling above my swelling, still!
I know everyone is going to recommend that I call my surgeon, and I will, but I am confident he will tell me to be patient. So easy for him to say...:(
I went to buy a new pair of pant. I picked out the same cut, style and designer of the other 3 pairs I have (different color). I couldn't get them on....you can see my swelling through my tshirt. Looks like I am pregnant only shifted to the left.
Does anyone have this? I feel like I am the only one! I am beyond frustrated! I am also hypothyroid (significantly) and I think I remember excess fluid/puffiness as an issue, but I feel like at this point in my recovery this should have resolved.
Any input is appreciated ~ so very frustrated.
