Is this a muscle spasm?.........

I am fairly new to this site and this is my first posting of a new topic, so hopefully I posted on the right board. I am currently about 6 weeks out from a 2 level fusion, l4-s1. My husband will usually rub my back and legs at night to help with the pain. He stays away from the incisions though. But last night his hand brushed against one of the incisions on the right side of my spine and it sent sharp shooting pains and the worst feelings all over my body. From my head and to every extremity. I mean it was like he just lightly brushed over it, no pressure what so ever. Does anyone know what this could be?


  • if this happened repeatedly i would have you call the dr. but a one time sensation like that is probably nothing but an aggravated muscle.
  • My husband had the axialif in Jan 09. It left him in so much more pain than before. It is so awful that they still do this type of surgery as it does not work.
    My husband's back never fused. We just had another re-do surgery to fix this problem. New Dr. thank god!

    and things are going much better! he is already feeling good again.
    I wish I could do something more to stop people from doing this surgery.

    Good luck to you.
