This is my first Post. I am 14 weeks post L4/S1 Fusion . Up until week 10 I was extremely positive and making great progress. Then as suggested I went for Physio. As the PT thought I was doing SO well, I was given exercises on a Trampette, a Bosu, Each leg was put in a sling suspended from roof and swung back and forward. On top of that ,deep Massage on the wound , which was painfull but as you put your faith in Experts I was confident this was for the best.
But, after the second session , I found it uncomfortable to do my walks and unbearable to not only lay on my wound but sit back on a cushion. Do I stop exercise or battle on through , perhaps making it even worse ? That was two weeks ago and I am still in great discomfort especially with pain on the left side and buttock. Even bed is uncomfortable. I feel SO isolated with nobody to discuss my concerns. will it all settle down again ?
I decided to Post this in the hope of getting advise , suggestions and reassurance .
