My father having an XLIF procedure on 20/5/2015, and after operation done, he is feeling great on the 1st and 2nd week. But started 3rd week, his pain is came back in another positions, which is the lower back pain, tie up to right thigh, he has to be in good positions on laying down the bed, else getting worst pain. He cannot walk totally, but just a little distance can go. Pain still go on, and started mid june, as co sulted from doctor, his body might be in bacteria infection, hence he has been admitted about 3 months till now, pain gone on and off, of course antibiodic is given twice a day everyday. CRP and ESR pathology monitoring once a week. MRI report done, but destruction nor degenerative of impants occurs, or any bad sign at implant side, everythings in good positions.
Having improvement right now, can walk a small distance, stand for a short time, but after a 10 minutes, pains come and need to lay down on the bed and straighten the leg to release the pain. We are very frustated, and vert tired. Unlike the very 1st time after operations, walking and sitting normal at all. Had just communicate with doctor, need another 3 weeks for further investigation....
Anybody having the same problem with my father?or it might be not virus infectioned, may be other causes? If so please share on your experience and knowledge to me, highly appreciated it!
