On Thursday, I will be at 6 weeks post op from L5-S1 decompression and posterior fusion. This is my 2nd fusion and now have L3-S1 with hardware. Some days i am doing great. Some days I have extra pain. Today is one of those. I still have swelling along the incision. I cannot lay on my back yet. Today I have pain and fatigue. I feel exhausted. My doctor said this is all normal. Is anyone else having good and bad days? I dont feel so "normal" .
DDD 2 level ALIF L3-L5 in 2007. 4/11/13 posterior fusion w/decompression on L5-S1.
