I finally saw the neurosurgeon yesterday and he explained to me a lot more then my OS did. You see, the S1-L5 area is solidly fused. YEAH!!! L5-L4 has absolutely no fusion. He said that I should have fused there as well in the same amount of time. What's a girl to do? I was put into PT to try to strengthen my muscles. I have to get an EMG done along with Xrays. I go back to see him on Jan.8 and I assume talk about another surgery. Has anyone else been in this predicament and if so how was it handled? Any input would be most welcome and I strongly feel that I can learn from other peoples experences. Thank you!
