I had two level l4/5-l5s1 a/plif Nov 2013. Initially I believed I was recuperating normally albeit slowly. After not being strong/pain free enough for my medical job, I was terminated after 6 months. Pre-fusion I suffered mostly from left sided sciatica with numbness down to the real right sided pain to speak of. Post fusion left sciatica is gone but numbness n tingling is constant on that side and new right sided pain began last June from the buttock down the back of the right leg to the knee. This pain has not decreased in intensity since it began as well as having persistent lumbar back pain and heavy pressure. My question is this: is this common for a one year post fusion? Has anyone out there had a similar experience and what were you told about it?
