Hi...I had a 360 fusion L4-S1 at the beginning of Feb. My recovery was going so well...was off pain Meds after two weeks..My back pain was half of what it was before surgery but I had a lot of aching in both hips and legs (before surgery it was only my left leg). About a week ago the aching in my legs got a lot worse..not the usual burning/ tingling but a deep ache..then the back pain came back...I can't figure out if its a flare up (it's been a week) or if something really is wrong. Any opinions?
