LOL!...so your back! ...thats quite all right!
I used to, and still do PT at home...and one of the exercises I use, is to lay flat on your back and grab one leg behind the knee with both hands and pull your leg straight up towards you. Your rear end muscles are tied to your lumbar muscles and I found that after about a good 30 sec pull and release, that I got relief and it felt good. Repeat this on both legs of course. Also, again laying flat on your back, cross one leg over the other and with the opposite hand, pull on your knee crosswise and hold about 20 to 30 sec. It has the same effect as the first one, and may help loosen up the muscles. Of course, I would ask your PT about this first. My surgeon did not want me doing any PT for the first several months, as he said patients have been known to mess up the fusions.
Take care, and don't over do it....those fusions take a long time to heal...way longer than one might think.
