Hi, I had a back op fusion on two lower vertebrae I think it was L3 and L5 and a prothesis put in 2 years ago. I have been doing wonderfully and have had no pain whatsoever. Suddenly I have started with tremendous lower back pain. I have not injured myself and the prothesis is still in place as I saw the x-rays. Is it a fallacy to say that it could be the cold weather suddenly causing the pain? I have a job where I sit for most of the day. I bend my knees when bending down as it gets worse obviously when I bend from my waist which I know is not the correct way to bend. I take lentogesic for the pain but only 2 at night, I have a very high pain threshold and suffer it out during the day but by the time I get home at night I am in agony.
