I wonder if anyone else has had this since their lumbar spine surgery. I have noticed that when I sit down, no matter what angle or height or for how long, when I go to stand up the base of my spine kills me. I don't know if it's coming from the cocyx or what.
I never had this before surgery, so why has it been happening for the last 2 months or so? Do you think it could be from:
The pressure of sitting when the load on the spine is at its worst
Or that my spine shape changed when they did the fusion
Or am I sitting for too long.
Who knows? It's so blimming painful.
I'm having an MRI in January because I still get back/leg pain, but I don't think they'll be looking lower than the operation site.
I'd be interested to find out if anyone else has felt the same, and if you found out why and if you resolved it?
