L4-l5 lumbar spine fusión surgery

User Profile
I had surgery May 3rd and it has now been 10 1/2 weeks. I thought I was getting better but now I have upper back pain. I had X-rays and was told that my spine looks fine. I don’t understand what is causing spams and upper back pain. Also I feel pain on soles of my feet (I always invest in good shoes with good support). Surgeon said planters fasciitis but I don’t feel pain immediately in the morning, so I’m not sure I believe that. Aleve is not helping. I am seeing chiropractor for upper back and letting lower back continue to heal. I just wonder why I still have pain in my lower back and now upper. The leg pain and sciatic pain is gone. I walk 4-5 miles a day. It just feels like I’m never going to get better. Dr’s PA told me surgery was more more leg pain ... what about my back pain? I’m confused ...
