Hi, did the surgery get rid of your nerve pain? Did they cut through you back side of your body? Who did your surgery? Are you happy that you had surgery?

Thanks

What kind of post-op treatment has your Dr. recommended? Have you started PT yet? being as young as you are is definitly in your favor, but follow through and allow yourself the needed time to rebuilf the muscles adn bones to keep your spine as strong as you can,we all take too much for granted when it comes to out backs. Good luck,you are close to great sources for Mecical treatment.

Hi, codeblueguy -

I had my third fusion surgery back in February of this year. My first one was in October of 2004. I hope you keep us updated on how things are going with your post-op and what differences you're experiencing since you had your fusion surgery.

If anyone reading here would like more info about fusion surgery or would like to talk with others who have had this kind of surgery, please feel free to join us at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/LooseScrews2/

Best to all.
