I had L4-S1 TLIF fusion 10 weeks ago to correct stage 2 Spondylolisthesis.
Most nights, I am awakened by spasms(?) in the back of both legs. It's not cramping, but it feels better when I straighten out the legs. Seems to be worse after more daytime activity.
At my 5 week appt., doc said not to walk much. Are my legs just lacking exercise or is there some nerve inflammation issue?
I see the doc next week, but if you have any experince with this symptom, please respond. Thanks.
