Re: L5/S1 Recovery

[QUOTE=wigado1;5126261]I have been having a lot of pain and pulling under my left butt cheek since I had my surgery. I do the walking but it doesn't seem to be helping. Has anyone else had this after L5S1 fusion.[/QUOTE]

Hi wigado, Do you think it is muscular like spasms or do you think it feels like a nerve pain like sciatic nerve? Does it feel like nerve compression symptoms like before the surgery? I had lumbar laminectomies & i had radiating pain down my leg before surgery but still had some postop but intermittent associated with numbness & electric like shocks, pins & needles. It took 6 months before this nerve pain stopped happening,my neurosurgeon told me that the nerves took time to heal & come back to life after being compressed.
