4 months post L4-5 fusion and laminectomy and pain is back
Other than the strange autoimmune disease believed to be polymyalgia rheumatica that kicked in about 6 weeks after my surgery and is now gone, my back pain had pretty much gone away until a couple of weeks ago. It is now back and in the same area it was before the surgery. This is very discouraging given all that I have gone through. I do plan on contacting my surgeon but am just wondering if this is normal, will the pain diminish (i.e it's part of the healing, fusing process) or is this another example of surgery that really didn't help. Thanks.
