Today I am overjoyed. It was 4:30p.m. today that I received the call from the Appeals Specialist with my insurance company and she had good news. After a 30 day battle, my surgery was finally approved. So I cannot wait until Monday when my surgeon's office opens so I can make the call. I encourage everyone if you're fighting your insurance company.....BE PERSISTENT!!!!

So, can anyone tell me about the recovery time for a Non-Invasive Lumbar Fusion. I was told I would receive staples instead of stitches :SS and I would be in the hospital for about 3 days or so.
