Hi everyone :H
I've been reading through the forums concerning spine fusion trying to gather answers to many of my questions.
I just had surgery on L4 & L5 about two weeks ago. They also Fused the two together. So basically two surgeries in one.
For the first week I laid still, didn't move much and tried to take it easy. My husband ran the house for me with two small children.
Well around Christmas holidays I found that it was nearly impossible to just lay still. I think my husband was about to go insane with all the commotion going on..lol
So I had to get up and help were I could. I have a 3 yr old and an 8 month old. So I had to lift, bend and twist also.
Now of course I am hurting like crazy.
My question is simply this. Has anyone else had to do the lifting and bending and twisting so soon after surgery and if so did you still turn out ok or did you mess up something and had to go back to the doctor or possible surgery again?? I am really worried but life doesn't stop for me to recover.
I wear my back brace often also but sometimes my 3 yr old runs off with it and who knows where it ends up.
Just needing some answers here.
