I had a spinal fusion L4, L5, S1 back in June of 2013 and everything is going well. Some bone growth but not as much as I thought i would have. I see my surgeon for another follow up in July.
For the past 2 days I have been having the strangest symptom. It seems that there is an area near but not close to where my original incision was that has been giving me some pain when I move or get up from a chair. Its not severe but its still an uncomfortable pain that I have not had since my surgery. At first I thought it was muscle strain. I use my back brace whenever I'm making beds, etc. but not for normal everyday use. Surgeon said I didn't have to use it.
I'm concerned that maybe even though its not exactly where my incision is could it be a screw that has come loose? I have no idea but hubby seems to think that after this amount of time its pretty much not possible
Any suggestions or if anyone has had this experience please post.
Its awful after being free of low back pain for almost a year, now I have to deal with this. I was thinking it might just be sciatica, or maybe another disc flared up or something.
Thanks and I hope everyone is well.
