I'm 11 weeks post op ALIF. I saw my OS last week. I've been having pain after sitting/driving for more than 30 minutes. After sleeping about 5 hours I begin hurting and have to get up and walk around. He took an x-ray and fusion looks good. He sent me for PT. While the Physical Terrorist was streching my right hamstring I felt a sharp pain n my back. I'm in bad pain now in my back, rght buttock and maybe a little down the back of my leg. It does not go all the way to my feet. But my big right toe is tingling. I don't think it's from the streching. The fusion was at the L5-S1. L3 and L-4 were already bulged. Dr said that if the PT didn't work, that the pain may be coming from them.
Please tell me something good!.................even if it don't have to do with your back, LOL
Let me know what you think.
