| | Weak Legs/Pain 1 year after spinal fusion, related????
I had a two level spinal fusion one year ago. My back feels great. BUT I have very weak legs and leg pain. My knees ache and so do my hips. I did not have this before the surgery. Could this be surgery related? I am a active mother of 3 daughers, I am not over weight and I work fulltime. Has anyone else experianced this? If I sit for more than 5 minutes I have to get up and stretch, sometimes I have a hard time walking at first after I get up from sleeping or prolonged sitting. They feel weak, sore, as if my legs are going to buckle. No shooting pains or any sciatica pain.
