<):) I guess I must be one of the lucky ones. I had a 360 fusion 3 weeks ago at L4-L5 and I must say I am doing extremely well. My lower back does stiffen up after walking for a while and I have to take a couple of Vicoden to ease it up. Yesterday I was even able to jump on the riding lawn mower to bag up some leaves. Afterward there were no weird pains or anything out of the ordnary. Last year after my TLIF and 6 months post op I could barely walk for 2 days after doing exactly the same thing.
I am extremely pleased after the 360 procedure. I realize that it is much too early to consider myself 'fixed' and there are bound to be some bad days in the future, but for now I am enjoying my new back! <:P
Other than slight balance problems and getting pretty stiff and tired after a long walk, I'm doing GREAT!
Everyone have a Great Turkey Day =D> O:)
