Had a fusion of L4-L5 with a spacer placed in between along with spine decompression about 11 weeks ago (August 3, 2016). Just wondering how long others have taken to feel like it's worth it. At night I ached when I sleep on my back, and my hips hurt. Still having pain in my lower back (but not near as bad) and it radiates into my pelvic area. Is this normal? I should say though that I don't have the leg pain or foot pain that I dealt with for 10 years. Just wondering how long others have taken to fully heal after a fusion.
