I went for my 3 moonth follow up for my L4-5 360 fusion Tue. After talking to the surgeon and him examing me, he sent me for an MRI directly! He wants to see me the first day he is in the office next which is Tue.
I looked at the MRI and I can see an obvious herniation at L3-4.
When I look at my pain log, I realized I descibed the exact location for L3, the outside of my hips and my thigh.
I have stabbing, burning pain on both sides and numbness that is on the right side. My left thigh is swelling above the knee!
My surgeon's office called today suggesting that I take it easy until I see him.
I am wondering if this has happened to anyone else so soon after a fusion?
If so, were you going to PT when it happened?
What did they do about it?
I am so very, very bummed!
