Hello all been awhile since i have posted I had l4 l5 spinal fusion done last Oct 21st and things have been good .
However the last week or so I have noticed a hot pin or tearing sensation where I had surgery and it is getting worse every day and is starting to affect my work and frankly
kinda worries me a bit has anyone had this ?


  • Have you called your doc yet about this? The body goes through so much during surgery and after wards....some things are normal and some aren't. Try not to worry too much but do call your doc if you have not already. Please keep us posted...if you need to talk then just let me know...my hubby went through 3 lower back surgeries so I understand your concern...take care...
  • Thanks Prieste no have not talked to doc yet. I fell your hubbys pain this my second surgery .Not to worried yet just do not want to have a blow out

    I understand not wanting a blow out but you need to talk to the doc. My hubby had something similar to what you are talking about and his ended up being scar tissue build up around the hardware...not saying that is what you are going through...hence you needing to talk to the doc soon!!! I am here if you want to talk , you are not alone hon...:)
  • Thanks you a very kind :H
