I am 9 weeks post-op from 3 lumbar lamenectomies, dura tear repair and micro discectomy and I am getting WORSE.
I am having pain in my back like if I make any wrong twist or turn, then my back will be totally " thrown out"
If you know what I mean? I am afraid and could just cry....
I did have 103 fever only 12 days after surgery and was delerious and in the middle of the night I fell when trying to get off of the toilet and landed on my 8 months old NEW TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT on tiled flooring.
Maybe I loosen something with the spine repairs and now with more walking and activity, Its going to all fall apart!
I am icing more in the last few days then in the 8 weeks post-op.
My next post-op appt is in three weeks. I hope i feel better then by the grace of God and/or can make it that long to see my surgeon if I am in trouble.
