Intense Muscle Spasms after Surgery

My husband had a L4/S1 fusion with rods and screws on 12/9 and a decompression surgery on 12/29 due to a bone graft from the first surgery sitting on a nerve. Just about 5 days he started having intense muscle spasms. They are so painful he has hard time doing anything including getting him to PT. He's pretty much has to just sit in his recliner all day. I get him up a few times to walk around but hes terrifed he will get a spasm. We've already done a CT and MRI and everything looks good. He's on a muscle relaxer ( Zanaflex) but it does nothing to help. Has anyone experienced this after 8 weeks in? Does it get better? We are just so lost and would love to hear your experiences.

Thanks
