For some reason my original post above is unreadable…..
m 10 years post-op and you said to slow down....I did, for a while! Now, I have the nagging Sacral pain that is similar to pre-op. The only difference is that I dont have pain at the levels of the TLIF, it
s behind my Illiac Crest near L5-S1. Is this normal at 10 years? The last thing I want to do is start all over again! If the vertebrae are fused and theres no movement, what causes the pain…..other than rock climbing, mountain biking, road riding, work, etc? The last sentence just answered my question, geez!
