| | knee pain after spinal fusion
Wondering if someone has had the same problems I'm having, and may be able to shed some light on the subject. I had a spinal fusion in June 2002. L-4 thru S-1. Since the surgery my back feels pretty good, but my knees hurt badly, but only when I'm putting pressure on them, for example, when I'm squatting, climbing stairs, or getting up out of a chair. Standing and walking cause no problems at all. The doctor says this problem is not related to my surgery, but I have never had any problems with my knees until I had this surgery. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
