Hello all -
Had L4-S1 ALIF on 8/17. On 9/8 I still had leg pain and they discovered a fragment still on the nerve so went in for outpatient laminectomy/discectomy..
Have been feeling pretty good. Slow but sure progress.
I'm 36, in good shape and don't smoke.
Here's my question.
On 10/30, which was just about 11 weeks post ALIF, I fell down about 5-6 marble stairs. I feel pretty good.. no major pain and certainly no major change in my pain level.. but now I'm freaked out that I may have damaged something. After almost 11 weeks, would you think I'd be fused enough to withstand any damage?
How would I know if something was seriously wrong?
I have an appt with my doctor later this week where I'll get x-rays but just curious if anyone has experience with this?
