Re: Extreme hip pain after back fusion
I did develop hip bursitis after one of my back surgeries. My spine surgeon explained it was the way I was positioned on the operating table.
Also, for your fusion did they take any bone from your hip for the fusion? If so that pain is long lasting and "deep". Sometimes they do fusions with bone only or a combo of bone and hardware or hardware and bone protein.
