Hi, I am 8 weeks post op, (PLIF) and have started having horrible sharp stabbing pains in my back, I think it might be spasms, but they are different than I have been having, and my muscle relaxer doesn't help any now. It happens mostly when I stand up, and I almost fall, I am afraid that I will fall. I don't see my doctor for another 3 weeks. Anybody have any ideas? Valley
Valley, sorry to hear your having such pain. After I have layed down for awhile and go to get up I am unsteady and horrible muscle spasms until I have been up for about 10 min. I am 7 weeks post-op. I would call your doc, just to give you peace of mind if nothing else.
