After having a double laminectomy L5 - S1 on October 25, some of my nerve pain has disapeared with the exception of pain in my hip area. Could this possible be arthritis in my hips causing this? Any ideas anyone?

    I had a L5-S1 fusion and was told it could take up to a year for everything to settle back down and some pain till then was normal. As it looks your not to far out from your procedure I would think your still in the healing mode but you should ask your dr as everyone is different.

  • I agree with Mark. It will take time so go easy.
