I also had C5-6 fusion surgery in August 2012 and it got worse before it got better. I hope this gives you hope for the future, you will be feeling better in time. I wonder why you re not on muscle relaxer? i really can telll when mine runs out! Good luck! I hope you both improve each day.
Today is day 4 post Op L5 S1 tLIF surgery. Pain is worse sitting or laying flat. I try to keep painful leg elevated at knee ( with pillows) i have to walk alot to keep it at bay. Supposesd to be lower meds but i can nit see how i can do this so early. Any thoughts on this?
