I had L2 to L4 fused. It has never really gotten any better since my last surgery last year. However, now, it is very hard to turn over in bed. If I go over to the right, I get a very sharp pain in the middle of the surgery area but it is now going over to my hip which is a new symptom and it is getting worse and worse. The same is true for the other side. It is the kind of pain/ache that stops you in your tracks to the point of actually growning while I turn. It can be agonizing and I am losing 80% of sleep.
Could this be the added pressure on the lower vetebra due to the fusion right about it? It feels like that and the pain is coming from the bottom level and not the top. If I lay on my stomach to sleep, if I arch even a little bit, that also causes a sharp pain like there is a steel rod in my bad, which I guess there is now due to the fusions.
Any thoughts on this? Thanks.
