I am 6 weeks out from surgery, fusion L4 and L5 and have been doing really well until I started PT! at the end of the day i have PT i am having trouble walking, stiff and sore. the next day i want to sleep all day and am very stiff and sore. is this usual following surgery? i get confused between "listen to your body" and "no pain, no gain."
65 yo female, RN, approx 3 year hx of back pain, numbness,tingleing down L leg. had all conservative txs for stenosis, foraminal nerve impingement L4,L5 then had fusion
