    ALIF surgery

    Had ALIF surgery almost 3 weeks ago and now bad leg pain on back of my thighs and under left knee. Is this common and when will go away. Back pains I knew but leg is bad. I have been walking probably too much

    Thanks so much!

    Re: ALIF surgery

    Welcome to the board. Do I understand that you did not have leg pain prior to surgery? It was mostly in your lower back? It is not unusual to have some new pain following surgery as the surgeon usually has to work hard to get the nerve or nerves decompressed.

    You are very early in your recovery. But if you are walking too much, you could be making the normal pains of recovery worse. How much are you walking?
