I am new here, but have enjoyed reading this informative forum over the past few days.
Anyway, this is my situation. I had spinal fusion at L4-L5 last Monday, 7/27. When I first stood up after surgery, I had no pain at all. This was literally like a miracle, as my leg pain had been excruciating before. However, 6 days post-op, my legs have some pain and weakness again. It's nowhere near as bad as before surgery, but still pretty uncomfortable. :-(
Just wondering if it is normal for the pain to come back so soon, after going away completely post-op, and if it will get better. Feeling a little discouraged right now.http://www.spine-health.com/treatment/spinal-fusion/spinal-fusion-surgery-recovery-one-three-months-post-operation
