Post Revision Spinal Fusion Surgery hunch

Hello I am new to the site but when I did research on spinal fusion surgeries. This was the best place that had answers.

My mother has finished a revision spinal fusion surgery about 4 weeks ago. She has been discharged for 3 weeks. The surgery fused her hip till t10. Right now she is 58 year old and has allergies to most pain medications. The only thing she takes is Tylenol for the pain. My sister and I have noticed that her back is a bit bent when she walks and she seems to be developing a hunch. When my mother and sister went to the doctor’s nurse to take out the staples from her back, they told her about what has been happening. The Nurse said that she just needs to walk with better poster. I still feel a bit concerned. I was hoping that maybe someone has faced this problem and have some insight about this topic. Since the surgery is still in the healing faze there might be some solution before it’s too late if what the nurse said was not true. I don’t think my mother can handle let alone accept doing a third surgery.

Thank you
