It's been a while..I'm 5 months post ALIF-PLIF fusion and 2 months post cleaning out of a infection in the back lumbar..
I started to go to the gym 3-4 times a week doing the bike and the elliptical trainer..I have been in allot of pain so not going as much and sleeping is becoming an issue..
I'm having issues while excersing all my toes go completely numb..
but don't want to give up..I saw the DR last week and is sending my for a routine reconstruction CAT SCAN to see if I'm fusing yet? I was wondering how long it took??? I know he mentioned there are cases were fusion fails?? a little concern..
