I am 7 weeks post op and although I am recovering well....I have had pain in both my hips since surgery that radiates a bit down my right leg and around into my back a bit. This pain feels like an intense sunburn that hurts especially when you touch it. It hurts just to pull my pants up over them. My doctor is convinced it is bursitis and is planning on injecting my hips this afternoon. I am not convinced he is accurate and just want to find out if anyone else has suffered this sort of pain after lumbar fusion?
