[QUOTE=Fiona_Jo_324;3824856]I'm sorry to hear about your returning pain. Some things to consider are:
- Does the pain differ from the pain you experienced prior to surgery? Are you have any nerve related issues, leg pain, etc.
- Do you recall doing anything that might have put strain on your recovering back?
- Could it be from becoming more active/doing more than you might have been doing post-op?
- During your previous post-op appointments how were progressing towards fusing?
It's great that you have an appointment next week, because this will get your surgeon's attention and definitely try and be specific as possible with what you've been experiencing. I'm sure your Doctor will order tests to try and get to the root of why you're having the increased pain.
You're in my thoughts. Keep us posted on how your appointment goes.

Fiona, thank you very much for the kind response. The pain is in the same general area as pre-surgery but daily and more intense. It is worse after prolonged sitting - I have been in a class for the last 3 days and it's been uncomfortable. I have been very active since the surgery and I am sure at times, I over did it. In addition, I am walking very day whereas before the surgery, I walked only 3 times per week. I feel worse at night and climbing into bed I feel like a 90 year old man. I'll post back after I see the surgeon. I do want to discuss with him physical rehab as I have not undergone since the surgery.
