Post TLIF Fusion, Bone Graft Site

Hi all....I am 2 months post op lumbar fusion at the L5/S1 level. I had bone removed from my left posterior iliac crest and it still hurts. Burning and stinging and if bend too much then it really hurts. Anyone else experience this at 2 months post op and beyond??? I am tempted to go to the Dr. to make sure I don't have a fracture in that area. I saw my surgeon at my 6 week post op visit but he didn't seem to concerned and the xrays taken were only of the hardware. I go back to work in 3 weeks.


  • From everything I've read pain can be common in that area up to 2 years after a fusion...
