I had my Lumbar Spinal Fusion L5 S1 August 1, about 9 weeks Post Op .... since I still have problems with my left leg/foot my Surgeon ordered a CT scan today--I'm hoping to get clarity.
I am thankful that my pain did lessen to the point that I could wean myself off some Meds>> So just letting those of you know to hang in there!!
I have to say as I read many people seem to get an after effect like this from Spinal Fusion so I try to be patient and hopeful.
In fact I have been walking much more and going to the gym..... for me though I only use Treadmill and for now only doing 30 minutes- I think it really helps!! Mostly it gives me Hope
My Surgeon has not ordered Physical Therapy -He is giving more time to strengthen my Back--Which I Appreciate .......so as I walk more I think soon I will be in Physical Therapy soon enough and more improvements up ahead -- I'm so looking forward!!
HANG IN THERE AND APPRECIATE ANY IMPROVEMENTS!!
