Hi all, I am a bit FREAKED out!
Sorry I haven't been on the forum for a few days, haven't been feeling well.
Yesterday was 12 weeks since my ALIF L4-5. P/t has me doing knee raises in standing position, not real high, I can't even make it to hip level. Tonight I was standing on my left leg and when I raised my right bent leg upward I heard & felt a loud POP and while lowering it, its cracking & clicking. It was so deep within me. At first, I couldn't tell if it was coming from my hip or back. (my knee was popping too, but that is the norm for me)
I placed my hand on my upper lumber and the popping is in deed coming from there. Scared me to death, it feels higher then my fusion, but right away I'm thinking loss screw or something! I did do the knee raise to show my husband & son and it continues to POP.
Yes, it is causing pain to do that move, so I won't till I figure this out! My spine is hurting, deep in the spine not muscle pain and not nerve pain, just straight up bone like pain.
PLEASE, has this happened to any of you?
Any opinions? Should I be concerned?
Thanks for reading and for your kind replies.
Hope everyone is well.
