Today I hit my 2 month mark! I feel a bit stronger and cut back on my meds. I'm still using the bone stimulator hoping this time around I FUSE!!!!
I will say this surgery has been much HARDER than the last! PLIF is a tougher surgery I believe. I'm still in pain everyday especially if I over do it.
Anyone else having pain 2 months out PLIF???? Is it normal. I get this burning tight feeling in my legs every morning and sitting is still an issue. By the end of the day my legs feel like they want to fall off. I start therapy in a week hoping that helps!!
