I am sorry that I just located this forum. I sure could have used it over the last several years.
I am in week 8 recovering from a second surgery, my first was 9-14, this current one 10/30
This second surgery was more laminectomy, more discectomy and finally the fusion of S1-L2.
My questions are for any of you who had a multi level lumbar fusion done. What should I expect pain wise, I am in week 8 and still dealing with some pain down the legs, mostly hip/lumber/spine area. Will these areas just work themselves out over time.
What about work. How long before you could really return full time.
I am anxious for any replies.
