3 weeks post op - Lami and L4-5 fusion - leg weakness and aching
Although the pain is subsiding in my lower pack from the surgery, I am experiencing (more it seems each day) increasing weakness (more like aching) in my legs. They feel extremely heavy. Is this normal after such surgery? At what point should I phone my doctor? Thanks.
