I am a 40 year old male that just had done anterior lumbar interbody fusion (alif) surgery with cage implants and bone grafts harvested from my own hip bone in L4, L5, & S1. This was on the 3-12-15 in San Diego. I spent 3 days in the hospital and everything went well for the most part. I was able to walk on the second day (very painful), Now I am suffering from major back spasms -cramps in my lower back. This started exactly 8 days after the surgery. My surgeon put me on Valium as a muscle relaxer. Apart from my pain killers percocet and fentanyl patches.I wanted to see if this was common and most important (passing by) hopefully. I am really suffering -- every day for me. I think twice juts if I have to get up to go to restroom or just get out of bed. The back spasms/cramps hit me for about 30 to 50 minutes long. I try to do control them with deep breathing but no luck to painful. I am really close to going to ER sometimes. Any info is appreciated. Now just a few days ago I began on April 6 to be exact experience sciatica on my right leg shooting pain down my right hip/buttocks, goes down the back of the leg. All the same pain I had experience for the last 3 years that were on my left leg /side only. Never my right side leg now I'm dealing with this. It's horrible I feel my pain level is higher on my right side from what was on my left side before ALIF surgery. I have spent my last few days in bed mostly. Just getting up is a task and getting back into bed that sciatic pain make me a grown man that has been hurt in the past almost break into tears in front of my family. I hope this is something just passing by due to my recent ALIF surgery in 03/12/15. I am eating away at my pain killers like they were candy. I know this is bad but even before, I never had to take that many pills prior to my ALIF surgery. Plus I have to get back to work ASAP to protect myself/job and with all these pain issues just no way. I can barely walk a block at snail pace without leaning on something or taking a breather. Please any past history similar to my current experience or ideas I should do or follow let me know! I truly will appreciate help from everywhere here and above.
