    Hi Steveo.... I had laminectomy L4-5 posterior fusion last March. I don't have the sciatic pain any longer, but I'm developing some lower back pain... Mostly left side, opposite than before surgery. I'm also having some minor hip pain. Been doing Aqua pt therapy, but they want me to get rechecked/scanned before I continue any further. Hopefully I'm just healing slowly, and nothing going on below fusion.

    Your arm and hand issues seem more from mid back or cervical area. Have you ever been checked for carpel tunnel?
