I had a 2 level fusion s-1,l-4 (tlif) on nov 20. everything has gone pretty well except for the fact that when i lay down once i try to move my back spasms worse than i ever could have imagined and i cannot move. i finally work my way out like im 90 and once i walk 10 steps or so i am good to go. i spend a lot of time on my feet during the day and do some walking. has anyone else experienced this and will it subside. any info would be appreciated. please feel free to pm as well thanks. ed


  • I know it's still early in your recovery period and hope you're not overdoing things. Are you on a muscle relaxant? You should call your Surgeon and perhaps get something to help you that pain and maybe a referral to pain management Dr. Take Care. Charry
