I had a lower lumbar Fusion back in April and still having pain in my left leg when I lay down on my left side and sometime when i lay on my back. Also abdominal pain when I lay down it keeps me up through the night and if I do sleep I wake up in pain does anybody have advice on how to resolve my pain issues?



  • This is actually pretty common.  Let your surgeon know what's going with the pain.  Remember, with fusion there are a lot of changes made to your spine that can really tick off your nerves and muscles.  It can be frustrating, but don't let it get you down!
