Re: Lumbar fusion - post surgery questions
Definitely don't rush yourself your body needs time to heal. Healing takes a lot of energy so you are going to be tired. I had my fusion back in '97 then a revisions w/hardware in '98. Just don't rush things, especially getting back to a physically demanding job....that could cause more harm. I too developed hip pain, both hips. It started about 2-3 months after. There may be some inflammation causing the leg pain , give it time and rest.
