5 1/2 weeks postop from a l4,l5 fusion. I had my fusion on 1/31/19.

so far all has been in the positive side off things. I only had some pain on my left hip and going down my leg. I have not need much pain medication.

my pain has been 3/5 mostly in the mornings . This Monday I see my Doctor and hope to find out when is PT starting . I am only taking one norcor and one flexiral every 12 hours . 

Well I hope to return to my job ( 4th grade sped teacher) late April or May. Wishing everyone a prompt recovery. Thanks for your support and guidance.

    Thanks for the update and to know you are doing so good. The pain going down your leg is nerve pain from the nerves trying to wake up so this is normal. 
    And you are very welcome, have enjoyed talking to you.
