Hey everyone. I had my L2/L3 tlif in December and was doing well. Still having some pain but nothing too serious. Last week 4/21 I was lifting something and immediately had god awful pain. I've been having constant sciatica on my left side which is new (always had it on right proir to fusion) and having severe low back pain. Like pain so bad that Im constantly nauseous and puking when I try to take a pain med. I've went to physical therapy the next day and have gone in every day they were open. Kindof helped but still hurting as soon as i leave. The pain is awful like the pain I had on day 3 in the hospital. I cant seem to get ahold of my surgeon and have been resting, ice, heat, ibuprofen, ect. Laying down hurts, I can barely sleep, can Barely bend and I have been taking off work because im hurting so bad.
Not sure what to do at this point. I dont think its possible to injure my fusion but maybe herniated a disc? I cant find alot on people injuring themselves so soon after fusion.
Any ideas or advice? Did you injury yourself?
