Nerve pain after spinal fusion surgery
Hello,
I have been dealing with back problems for a couple years and at only 18 years old I'm sick of it! I had a L5 lumbar fusion surgery right before christmas (about 5 weeks ago). I've had a microdiscectomy prior to that in June of 2008 as well. The surgeon told me that when he saw my spine with his own eyes, the joints were places differently then they normally should be. I have been going through what I would think is the normal recovery. Everyday seems to be getting better but it is very painful which I realize is expected. What I am wondering about is the excruciating leg pain that has yet to go away. I had sciatic pain in my left leg before the surgery and it is now worse then before. I have also had on and off sciatic pain down my right leg which was never a problem until after the surgery. If this is normal please tell me because I would really prefer not to have another surgery! I wish I could get back to my active life.
