I'm 8 weeks post TLIF surgery at L4-5. I've been recovering well, walking two miles per day and swimming twice per week now.
In the last few days, the pins and needles in both feet has returned, much worse when I sit down. I also have sharp pain in the back of my hips that won't go away.
Walking is fine, swimming is fine, but sitting is getting really painful again.
Should I worry or is this normal during fusion recovery?
