severe muscle spasms after surgery?

Hi All

I am having muscle spasms in my legs and buttock. Hard to get up from chair, off bed, toilet raised seats

is this usual??? How long does it last



  • I don't know about the spasms after lumbar fusion, but I am 7 days out from my ACDF, and the spasms/cramps in my shoulders and neck are kicking my . . . well . . . you know what. It is hard for me to lift my coffee cup with my right hand, because my right shoulder muscle hurts so bad.

    I've read that spasms are common with ACDF, so maybe the same is true for yours? I hope you are able to find some relief - you've certainly been through the wringer!
