Hoping somebody can ease my mind! As I mentioned, it's been 3 months since my 3 level lumbar fusion. My back is progressing great! I am still doing physical therapy and seeing good results from it. I was down nearly a year prior to my surgery. I am really struggling with fatigue. After therapy or after a few hours activity I am completely exhausted! I have been requiring 12 hours of sleep a night and resting multiple hours per day. If I have a really busy day it is normal for me to be down for a couple days afterwards. Is this normal? I keep wondering if I am depressed and I just dont realize it or if this is "normal" for my circumstances?? Anyone have advice???
2007 and 2010 L4-S1 Microdiscectomies; helped for a total of 3 years between the 2 of them.
10/03/2012....back reconstruction L3-S1...large titanium "seperators" were put at each level with synthetic bone graft material.
