Lumbar Spine Fusion

I had lumbar spine fusion surgery 6 months ago. I am still in terrible pain and my doctor says that I probably will not get any better. This is very depressing to me. I am having trouble getting around and it is miserable just to turn over in bed. Does anyone else have this type of pain still after surgery and did it ever get any better?

It has been a year and a half since your share. Are you still in pain now? I struggled for the year following my fusion before I finally felt better. I hope things have improved.

I'm at 6 months still in pain as well but trying to get back to work.. The pain is bugging me at the top of the fusion of t10 to l3
