I am almost 2 months post op from my L5-S1 Tlif, I feel good most of the time, however I still feel exhausted after doing anything, even taking a shower. I have had 1 follow up and have my second in May where I will have x-rays done for the first time, I am nervous. I am no longer having leg pain, but I do have the feeling of pressure in my back around the incision which really hurts. Also, I have noticed the numbness I have has increased, but is in weird spots like the back of my left thigh, the right side of my chest. Has anyone else experienced pain from pressure around the incision or random numbness?
My surgeon didn't seem concerned about anything at my appointment other than my not being able to sleep (due to the pain from the pressure in my back).
