I'm 12 weeks post PLIF and is in more pain there ever!!! Walking,sitting and just about any movement brings the pain on. I'm back on my meds. The pain in my hips and pelvis is extream at times and PT only makes things much worse!!
Totally discouraged to say the least. The PT believes it's my sacrum because every time I go to PT my sacrum is out of place.
Could this be because of the L4-L5 fusion. Also little upset because I did mention to my surgeon that the S1 was infected years ago and some bone had to be removed..I asked him does my S1 look unstable ( I was told years ago when I had the infection there that the bone was fragile)Could the fusion be putting so much pressure on it??
I feel like I'm at my braking point with this pain. I do go back Tuseday hopefully I can get answer's.
