Hello my name is Melissa,
I am new to this site and I'm looking for advice.
I had a bone Fusion on my L5 S1 September 20th 2017, I was healing well in the beginning and all seemed good but the past 3 weeks I feel like I am declining with recovery. It's just about 3 months since my surgery and I am still in a ton of pain when I walk. I go for physical therapy, I'm out and about and do as much as I can tolerate. I was doing fine with more pressure in my back then pain. Now I feel I am back to square one. I have no strength in my lower back, even the slight Bend at the sink to brush my teeth hurts and I have to hold the sink to stand myself back up. Im getting very frustrated. Is anyone else going through a tough recovery. Im getting no answers from my Dr. Not really sure what to do.
