Post-Surgical complications

My dad- age 60- has had a L4-L5 Stenosis surgery 2 months and 20 days ago. He stays in bed most of the time. He has now developed severe pain in his back ( the spot of surgery ) for about a week because of which he can not sleep at night as it gets worse at night. Pain also gets worse when he gets up of his bed ( going to the washroom etc ). There is also a TB infection in his wound but doctor says its not a serious issue, Dad is taking medications for that as prescribed by doctor. Is this normal ? How much time is it gonna take for complete recovery ?

  • Hi Aleena, 
    I hope your dad feels better soon. Hopefully the doctors can give him some medication to get him walking again, until the nerves are healed. Lying in bed can't be good for him. Does he have a physical therapist coming to the house that you could speak to? Take care, MaryAnne
    Take care and God Bless,
