im 4 months out from L4-L5 fusion with a vertebroplasty. Not much fusion at my last check up, been doing PT 2x week until last week when I got either the flu or a really bad cold. The cough has been awful, but today it’s kicked my butt. I was back on ice packs and grunting when I stand. Everything feels really stretchy-pully around my hardware, too.
Is that something you’d call the doc about or expected when feeling like poo and coughing? After my first botched surgery I’m paranoid I’m going to break something in there or k ice it loose.
