I’ve had a Lumbar Decompression Surgery with fusion and L5S1.
It was going well and most nerve compression caused by the disc protrusion (leg pain, numbness and tingling) was gone post op.
It’s been 6 weeks yesterday since the surgery and the last week or so the pain the my Lumbar spine at the site of the surgery has gotten worse and worse but only with movement.
I’ve wnds up in A&E last night as pain got out of hand and maxed out on pain meds.
They have run tests inc blood and xrays and it’s all fine but I cannot bend forward, get off chairs or a bed.
I am told to keep moving within my pain limits but movement hurts.
GP put me on antibiotics but blood test showed no infection.
Is this experience shared by any out there?
I’ve had acupuncture, physio you name it.
First 4 weeks post op were ok but now it’s going downhill
