3 level fusion, 9-1/2 mos. post-op pain

I had a three level fusion with "boo-koo" instrumentation. I am 9-1/2 months post and just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing? When I roll over in bed (so twisting) it still hurts,.... enough to make me groan... Is this normal? And how long (if normal) does it take for "that" pain to go away? Other than that, I'm doing pretty darn good.


  • I had a Two level operation, L4-5 and a ProDisc in L5-S1. It took me a long time to get used to sleeping with a pillow between my legs while on my side, or under my legs while on my back. I would turn just right and bam, I would get a spike. It took about 6-9 months to quit, but has been gone for some time now. This will pass. Best wishes.
  • Oh I wish I was 9 1/2 months but an now at 7 months.
    However turning in bed is not a problems for me but I still use my slippery sheet to make it easier.
    I also have a double bed that I dont have to share, so can just roll sise to side when I want. :))(

    Hope it imporves for you. Maybe you need to be doing some more core stability exercises.

    Blessings Sara O:)
