My mom had L5-S1 fusion 3 months ago and now her numbness returned and lower back stiffness is getting serious. She developed new symptoms like sensation of extreme heaviness on her lower back and legs which makes her difficult even to walk. She is on rehabilitation exercise but yet little help does it do to her. She had x-ray and recently had MRI which doc said nothing seems wrong and the report says the result of the MRI is unclear due to some unknown reasons.
the MRI is on my pinterest board. http://www.pinterest.com/evelee333/spinal-fusion-mri-need-professional-to-give-feedba/
1. has anyone had pains returned at around 3 months post op? Will the pain ever go away?
2. Can anyone read the MRI and give me feedback on what the MRI says, is the nerve still compressed?
