So, I'm exactly nine weeks out from surgery. Is it normal that I'll have good days and bad and even increased pain some days. The last two days I've had pretty bad sciatic pain in both legs (mostly left) and even pain by my left hip, which used to be here I had severe sciatic and herniated disk pain. For the record, this fusion was my fifth surgery, so I'm not expecting any miracle or non-practical expectations. I just wanna be able to live my life in minimal pain and not have it get in the way of daily function. It has for the better part of the last several years and I'm 30 now. No more surgeries.
Anyway, the pain has been annoying an increased the last couple days. Is it really still just recovery and nerve pain moving around this far into it? I understand it's a long recovery, and my back is still sore and getting a little better, but the rest is what I'm worried about. I don't even have disks there anymore, so it's obviously not herniation pain, but it's nagging and just not going away.
Trying to stay patient. Trying to stay relaxed and not frustrated.
