I am 10 weeks post alif surgery for disc replacement and fusion. I was recovering pretty well for the first 8 weeks, and was nearly off of pain meds. At physical therapy a couple weeks ago they had me lay on my back on a sliding table and pull my knees to my chest. This wasn't the most comfortable position to be in. After that they put my feet in tension straps and had me push my legs straight, thus pushing the sliding table with my body weight on it. This was very uncomfortable and I informed my pt of it. She had me attempt to do several more reps. Ever since then I have been in a great deal of pain and at times can hardly stand up straight. I don't see my surgeon for another 4 weeks. I am back to taking pain meds and muscle relaxers on a regular basis. They seem to help the pain in my lower back for the most part, but do nothing for the pain running down my leg. Anyone had anything similar happen?? I hope there hasn't been any damage done. Any encouraging words? They have taken me off nearly all my exercises in pt which is rather discouraging.
