catching feeling in back is this normal? - 8wks post op L5/S1 PLIF

hi everyone just after a little advice.

has anyone else experienced what I can only described as a catching sensation on the left hand side of where I'm fused, it's like a sharp pulling feeling that goes down my thigh (doesn't feel the same as sciatica though) . it suddenly came on yesterday when I was out walking. it's the opposite side to the leg pain I had before my op as all my problem were in my right leg.

is this normal ? has anyone else has this?

I' walked further then normal yesterday I walked 3 miles where as I've been doing around 2 miles normally every day with my dog the past 3 weeks.

I'm 22yrs old and other than my back problems I've always been really fit, I worked as personal trainer prior to all my problems.

thanks in advance



  • and it may be a muscle or some of the hardware catching a bit as you are moving......you may also hear it a bit from time to time as well. Don't worry, you get used to it.......and learn to ignore it.
