I am 8 weeks post op. Had a lumbar laminectomy and fusion, L3/L4, L4/L5. Recovery has been going well, and I expect to return to work in early June (three months recovery). In the last month or so I've been experiencing hip and leg pain in my right leg. It is painful to go up the stairs, and painful when I change my sleeping position. The pain goes all the way down my leg, but it is not severe pain. Standing and walking are only a little painful. Could this be referred pain from the surgical procedure? I mentioned to the surgeon last week at my followup visit, and he said that if it continues, he'll order me an x-ray.
