Pain in butt returning 9 months after fusion

Well..it's been 9 months this week after a posterior lumbar fusion (L3-L4) with hardware...rods/screws..

Generally feeling pretty good, some groin pain/discomfort on hip (left side)where bone graft was done....My real sciatica pain PRIOR to surgery was in my right leg and BUTT...The last few weeks it has returned a bit, but much less severe...also some numbness on and off in my right 3rd and 4th toes...

Could this be the nerves "coming back a bit" or has the original problem returned? Has anyone else experienced this or something similar? The Dr's don't seem to see anything in the MRI or x-rays.

Trying to be hopeful....



Many thanks.

Laurinda (LAF)
