Hello everyone, im 29 and a little bit over 2 weeks post op of an open tlif . I was wondering if anyone else has had any of the problems i have. After surgery i was in extreme pain they didnt hook me up to any pain pump instead they gave me dilated and percocet every 4 hours but the dilaudid made me throw up every time they gave it to me which was just hell it was by far the worst pain I've ever been in after 2 days they switched it to demoral which knocked me out right after but didnt make me sick. Fast forward I've been home for a little over 2 weeks and before the surgery my left leg was numb part of the time and hurt all of the time and pretty much quit working my right leg was fine now after the surgery left leg is still a little numb foot still doesnt work and every morning i have sciatica down my right leg which goes away after i take a couple pills and get up and move around . I went to the doc yesterday for a check up and he said everything looks good on the xrays and mentioned i had a bat wing deformity at l5 which can be a source of back pain but didnt do anything to it wants to wait till i recover from the fusion to see how i feel i had asked about pt but he says thats not an option for another 4 weeks just walk and dont pick ip anything heavier than a fishing pole. O one more thing i watched Americas funniest home videos last night which was a huge mistake because everytime i laughed it caused extreme pain lol. Ive been reading on here and some people start pt 3 weeks after surgery but its going to be 6 weeks after for me? Is that kinda the norm or not?
