Data Entry Job – SCAM!

1 year Post ALIF Surgery Pain
I had the ALIF procedure last March 2009. The surgery went fine, and I was off wrkd for about 7 weeks (desk job). The surgery helped to relieve my "drop foot" and leg numbness symtoms and I'm a walking machine now. That's all good!
I was wondering if anyone still has post surgery pain after 1 year? This pain is located at my lower back where the surgery site is. This is not constant oain, but occurs after I sit for a length of time. The pain is not sharp, rather a tight/sore feeling.
My surgeon commented that low back pain at this point is likely related to generalized degenerative changes commensurate with aging and altered mechanicnal demands to my back. He recommended I start with an anti-inflammatory such as Motrin or Naprosyn for this condition. And if intractable, I may require a minor analgesic, as needed.
Does this make sense to others?
