I hate to ask this question but have to ask I need some imput! For the past few weeks I been getting allot of pressure in the rectum area!! It gets bad when I'm on my feet to long then it gets unbearable actually as soon as I get moving and sitting is almost impossible. No I'm not constipated!!
My Pt sounded very concern thinking it was my SI joint because she does feel it's unstable. My surgeons PA said that it's not that it seems to be muscle. He said it's not common and rare but it does happen to some who had L4L5 Fusions..
I'm back on my meds because the pain in my kegs and the pressure get very bad now! I was on the scale from 0-10 a 4 but lately at times I'm like a 8 or 9!!
