I had L4/5 fusion 9/29, TLIF method. My nerve pain was gone until I overdid, including getting up from kneeling without leaning on anything. What a fool I was! And I was also walking too much, I think. So my nerve leg pain is back.
I asked my nurse and she said this is a waiting game and it's still too early to tell if the surgery was not a success. I'm nearly 5 weeks out and the nerve pain came back at 3 -4 weeks. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm so very scared!!!
Thank you so much for any comments,
