Anyone else with an L5 S1 fusion?
I am 3 weeks post op and I think things are going ok, but the past few days I've had this weird, sharp pain that started in just my glute but over a few days has radiated down my leg. It's just when I first stand up, it's a really strong, deep, sharp pain and lasts for about a minute and then goes away. It's on my left side, which actually wasn't my "problem" side prior to surgery.
I've submitted a question to my docs office but I'd love to hear from anyone else with similar experiences. My thoughts are that I'm HOPING it's just a weird part of healing and it'll go away once I'm all healed up????
