  • Hello there, I'm 8 weeks post op 2 level fusion. I'm also concerned about a popping noise. It doesn't hurt, but I feel it a lot of time when I roll/get out of bed or try to lift my legs while in bed. I go to the dr Wednesday for xrays. I'm sorry ur feeling this too, it makes me nervous as well! I'm sorry I can't help u more, but just wanted to say ur not alone....maybe its settling or something....good luck s u continue ur recovery!
