So many times I read threads from new people asking about a specific condition, either prior to , during or after surgery.
We only wish we had the formal medical training to answer those type of questions. But we cant. There is no one on this forum site that is medically qualified to answer questions like that.
When you have a situation, any situation that you feel is not right with you, then you need to talk to your doctor about it.
Asking here could create a problem. Lets say you ask if that after procedure A, you had symptom B and ask is that normal.
Someone might reply, "Oh that is perfectly normal, dont worry about it"
But in fact the person that had procedure A with symptom B is in danger of having a serious problem.
No one, especially online can properly diagnose and make suggestions or tell you what is right or wrong.
That is for you and your doctor to discuss.
PLEASE ..... Dont ask if this is normal and never accept from another member that it is normal or not
Of course there will be times when its common sense about if its right or wrong, so in those cases if a member tells you not to run up/down stairs 3 days after fusion surgery, you can be pretty sure they are correct.
