Question for this community.I am 7 weeks post-op from an anterior-posterior fusion.
Have been slowly getting stronger and having less pain.Taking meds as needed..
Have been walking 1-2 miles daily. Just started exercises to strengthen core.
This week I developed a pain in my right hip (opposite side of pre-surgical pain) and right leg. last 48 hours.
I have been laying down most of the day due to pain in hip and leg. Hydrocodone is not helping very much.
Is this normal for pain to arise in an area previously pain free? Will it go away?Should I continue to do core strengthening and walking or back-off exercising for the time being?
Any advice would be appreciated. I am ready to be healthy again.
