  • Your fusion is to new and it is going to take time for it to settle down, so give it some more time. Hopefully your doctor has you on a good muscle relaxer, as sometimes that is what it takes following surgery. As you fuse you might need to lie down more often to help it out and limit your time in a vehicle for awhile and or build your tolerance back up. Don't forget to ice or heat as they can go along way. AS you know walking is the best thing you can do right now so walk walk walk.
