good morning. I had my fusion 6 weeks ago on August 29, 2017. Is it “normal” to be in more pain now than a few weeks after surgery? I had numbness on the top of my right foot for about 5 weeks after surgery. It’s not numb any more, and I’m having severe sciatic pain now. Also my spine/hips/butt feels more sore and painful.
I am meeting with the surgeon today for my 6 week follow up so of course I’ll go to him for the medical advice, but i mostly wanted to ask if this has happened to anyone else. I’m supposed to go back to work Tuesday and I hope I don’t have to. I thought I’d feel better by now. I thought I’d have ANY improvement from before surgery. It’s so discouraging.
