PLIF L5, S1 Recovery Question
It's been a while since I've last posted. I just had my PLIF surgery on January 17, 2011 and wanted to know if I am still in the early stages of recovery. I feel ok but just can't stand only for a short period of time. I basically feel the same as before my surgery but without the calcified disc pressing on my nerves. Before surgery, I was able to walk but couldn't stand for long and had my nerves were pinched. Is this normal to be in pain at this stage while standing? I have been walking a lot. Around 6-8 miles every week. I can walk all day but have pain from just standing. Are my muscles still healing that is causing this pain? I just had my 6 week checkup and my Dr. says that everything looks fine. He said it was normal to have this kind of pain but I wanted to get opinions. Thank you!
