Re: 6 months Post OP Pain Coming Back
I had a fusion almost four months ago, and yesterday got a new pain: a stabbing pain in my back. It responded to a mild muscle relaxant, and my PT identified the area and found a giant knot. I have never had a localized spasm. My muscle spasms have always engulfed my entire back, so I didn't recognize this pain as spasm-related. I'm hoping that your new pain isn't a new disc issue. Don't be afraid to check in with your surgeon: if caught early, you may be able to treat the new issue through more conservative treatment, like an epidural, even if it is a new disc problem.
