I just want to keep you guys posted on my latest development, I'm going on my 12 weeks post op next week. And I'm scheduled for my ct-scan this coming Monday, I hope everything goes well. As far as pain level goes, I still have minor flare ups but not compared to before the surgery. I try to walk everyday 2 - 3 miles (about an hour walk), I still wear my back brace. Am not doing any PT at this point, my NS does not want me to do anything else aside from walking and the usual NO BLT rule (and max weight I can lift is limited to 15 lbs). I still take pain and muscle spasms meds just whenever I needed it, once or twice a day.
I just want to ask my experienced fellow spineys, I'll be meeting my NS a few days after my CT-SCAN to discuss my condition and result of my CT-SCAN, I have questions in mind that I will certainly ask but I want to get some of your opinions (things that I need to check and ask my NS).
BTW, there is this one complication that I would like to check with y'all, I noticed this after my surgery, my butt cheeks sweat a lot before a bowel movement. Initially I was not paying attention to it as I thought It might eventually go away, but I'm on my 12 weeks now and I still experience it, did any of you had this type of experience after your lumbar fusion procedure?
Thanks for your time checking out my post and for those fellow spineys that will respond, I really appreciate it. I hope I will be able to return the favor to someone someday.
