Hi everybody. I had a L5/L6-S1 fusion 3 weeks ago. The first 2 weeks weren't too bad but this third week has been horrible specifically in the mornings.
Since the third week began I have been waking up crooked and leaning to my left side. I also get some kind of extremely painful spasm if I try to correct my posture or do much of anything during the first 2 hours of waking. The spasms are so painful I cry out and feel like I may pass out and have to grab onto a door frame or a railing until it passes. This only happens in the mornings.
Is this normal? Is there anything I can do before I get out of bed that could help? Thanks
