New to this forum, but hoping someone might be able to give me some info regarding recoup time.
I had a L4-S1 fusion last Monday (after 2 failed lamis) and had been getting better and better everyday. Yesterday I drove myself to the docs for staple removal and a bone stimulator thingee. I was literally feeling like a whole new person with not even a sensation of my previous leg/foot pain that had left me practically disabled for the past year.
This morning I woke up and my foot had that weird sensation...before I knew it my foot, knee, and hamstring pain is already back to 60% of what it was pre-surg...and this all happened today.
Is this normal? Can I expect some ups and downs? or is something wrong? Was the surgery a failure?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
