I had a 2 level spinal fusion L4-L5 & L5-S1,
spinal decompression and lumbar discectomy on 1 March 2010.
My recovery has been slow and feels like an uphill slog.
I am still not back at work and only recently started to drive. However the back of my right leg has started to throb in the last 10 days (this had prev vanished with the op) and I am now worried that my recovery is going backwards.
I feel that at 5 months I should be returning to some sort of normality. After reading many of the posts on this site I realise that everyone is different and their recovery the same, but would love to hear any advise
