I am 7 weeks post L3 - S1 fusion operation. The pain in my back for the most part is gone. However now I have a ton of pain in left hip, legs, and rear-end. In the mornings I wake up and It is a small miracle to get legs moving, because of pain, my joints and muscle are stiff and really sore. Is this normal and any clue why this is happening. I was hoping to not be in pain at this point I have been dealing with pain for ten years. In 2010 I had 4 surgeries including the ALIF, I also had a microdisectomy that lead to two really bad infections that destroyed my discs. Anyway just hoping for a normal life with out pain.
