On November 11th of 2016 I had a ALIF/PLIF LUMBAR FUSION L4/L5/S1 procedure. Staples were take out 13 days after surgery 19 from the front 18 from the back. My post opp was December 16 and a X-ray was done. But ever since surgery I've had excruciating nerve pain left/right leg this pain cannot even begin to define it. So much that i cannot walk or apply pressure. It is a constant 24/7 pain, I'm taking pain medication along with lyrica, and methocarbomol and it seems to be getting worse everyday. My next Dr. appt is January 16 2017 which is in a few weeks. This pain is a daily struggle and I'm afraid I have permanent nerve damage. I can feel the hardware of course in my back but that itself is tolerable to a point. This has been a nightmare. Any suggestions for alleviation?
