| | Lumbar fusion - post surgery questions
I am 7 weeks out from surgery. L5-S1 fusion, herniated disc, scoliosis, rods, screws, spacer, bone graft, the whole nine yards. My question: is it normal to still need to lay down often during the day? I just feel so tired, even though I walk. And it's still uncomfortable to sit. I have pain in my hips and down the back of my legs. I was told it could take up to 6 mos. for all the pain to go away.
