I had my L4 L5 S1 Fusion on July 9th 2013, I felt pretty good for the first 2 months, we went camping in our trailer the end of July and again in August did a little waking, but mostly relaxed in my lounge chair it was nice. September started PT on October 12 went in to my surgeons office for my 3 month check up and was told then I could do anything now, ride my quad, go hiking, pretty much anything ,so I kept pushing in it with walking about 1/4 mile, PT, rode my quad a couple of times and about two weeks later I was back in his office because I started hurting in my lower back, hips and had pain going down my legs. All he could tell me was "It's nothing to do with the surgery" and "he didn't know what was going on". Wow! I was speachless. My surgeon said I could go get injections, try chiropratic and/or PT and pretty much have a good day Wow! I told him I was going to PT that he was the one that wrote the perscription for me to go " Oh he says" I walked out of the office feeling like he just dropped the ball. In November the pain increased so much I have been taking pain meds 4 X a day. It's December still in pain hurts to stand or walk very long finally, I have an appointment to see a Dr. in the same practice for injections and/or possibly an MRI, CT scan. I beginning to think I was better off living on injections then having this surgery. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced these problems after this type of surgery? I just don't know what to think.
