History: lower back pain. Extruded herniation disc at L5 . S1. Had sergery: Discectomy + Posterior Spinal Fusion using two Interbody Lumbar Cages and two Lumbar Cage Blockers, 43 days ago.I was dischrged after 2 nights. I used a soft brace for first 15 days after surgery. My doctor approved it. The major problems I had , have been gone away now, were actually numbness in my soles and a sharp stabbing pain in my side, away from incision on my back, while sitting on the edge of the bed. I were also having a hard time during lateral movements whilst lying on the bed, a wired feeling, as if I am a tree and there is a pressure on a limb of mine! It had not been a great deal though untill following happenings took placed.Taking my doctor advice, I am not using back brace any more, except for probable long walking outside the house in future. I am just wearing it while sitting on toilet bowel.My great concerns stem from the strange expriences I was trough 2 nights ago, I heard a continues low sound inside my back while walking without immediate pain, as though bones were rubbing or something like that. When I was lying on bed half an hour later, I felt a sharp pain in my sacrum area for the first time. Today the sharp stabbing has gone away but I have a insufferanle pain while lateral movements on bed, much much worse than before. I do not feel sciatica in legs and hips, it is lower back oriented, having said that a very peanut numness returns on my hip and sole.Might it be a failed fusion ? I am 30 years old, single. EDITED I do not really relate it to the problem I am having now.My nerosurgeon also had told me that he would do an artificial disc replacement, but after I read the surgery report it all was about PSF and cage . I have my doubts if he really had used artificial disc.I just remembered the time I was brought to the ward in hospital from recovery section and a nursing assistant just pull my shoulders up while I was lying on bed , my mother witnessed. After taking a radiology 2 weeks ago, when my doctor told me eveything is perfect I did not ask about what the assistant had done. Many thanks in advance .
