My story post early November is in the New Member Intro. Oct 6 I had L4 and L5 XLIF fusion, and it hurt alot.
In my 4th week post op I felt so much better, x ray looks good according to my NS. Then last week I start having pain in the area where they fixed my back. Does anyone get set back in the healing process? It is a back ache when I stand or bend. I know to bend at the knees only, I hope I haven't done anything to injury myself. I'm very careful. I felt like I was on my way to feeling better, besides the exhaustion, but this pain has me questioning the healing.
Any one else experience this, I hope it is normal. And I will call my NS office to ask but I'm sure they will have me wait until my next appt and x ray in January,
