2 1/2 wKS ago I had a lumbar L2-l3 fusion done. Was discharged from hospital less than 24 hrs after surgery and then ambulance took me back for another 2 days I was told to walk as much as possible and start weaning off pain medicine. Tomorrow my Dr has set up physical therapy to begin. I'm able to walk for about 15-20 minutes, but numbness and pain when sitting I'm still in a great deal of pain and terrified of starting therapy so soon. Not comfortable with it at all. What can they possibly do for me when I still can't drive, twist, bend, or lift? All I can forsee is more pain. Has anyone else been pushed this fast? Is this normal to still have bad pain and no energy at this point? Just so scared and confused right now. Any advice would be helpful.
