My checkup for my fusion went really well. The bone is growing well no where near fused but it is in the process of fusing. I'm allowed to do what I want now, within reason. I start physical therapy next week for core strength and work conditioning. I'm not allowed to go back to work yet because I have a really hard physical job that requires repeatative lifting. My next appointment is on New Year's Eve. I've still got some right sided pain, but it isn't anywhere near what it was.
