I am nearly 4 weeks post op for Spinal Decompression and fusion L5/S1. I was initially surprised at how little pain in felt at first (except at the incision site) I did have some pain in my right leg which my surgeon was not concerned about, but now I have started having pain in my left buttock and hip mainly when I lie down and at night quite painful.
Is this normal at all to start getting these pains at 4 weeks? I am panicking in case I have done something wrong!! I am seeing my consultant Friday so will check with him them, but just wondered has anyone else had anything like this?
I am trying to walk each day, about 2 miles a day, not sure if this is good or bad?
