I am three and a half weeks post four-level lumbar fusion (S1-L2). I have done well, discomfort is minimal, went back to my three-hour-a-day office job this week and will go back to my church organist job next week. The surgeon says I have a "superficial infection" in my incision. He has me on antibiotics, I'll see a wound care specialist tomorrow, and will have home nurses pack the wound each day.
Has anyone else had this experience? I'd like to know what to expect. Thanks! --Dorothy
