Morning all. I am three weeks to the day of am l5-s1 TLIF spine fusion. If guess I was thinking that v of be better by now - obviously not completely but further along than I am.
It still really hurts turning over when lying down and transitioning from lying to standing is still very painful. Is so so difficult as I have a 2 year old son that is literally can't do anything with. I am up to walking between 1.5 and 2 miles a day, have managed to do some gentle cooking and house work. Am booked off work for anything up to around 7 more weeks - hoping that's enough as there's absolutely no way I could do go back to work in the current state I'm in. My incision has healed very nicely - all pain feels 'inside'.
I was just wondering if others could chime in about whet they or others they know with similar surgery were at 3 weeks post op for a similar surgery.
Thanks and good health all,
