I used to come on the forum looking for answers in the past couple of years. And now I have finally had a fusion and have come on for support as we all do when we are down.
I havent seen a lot of people have a level 2 fusion L4L5S1 via abdomen. Is it less common?
Right after surgery was the worst, as expected...and when I came home from the hospital I thought I was never going to heal.
Now I am walking several walks a day, driving and feeling much better. A day at a time, of course. And yes..one step fwd, two steps back. But at least things are changing.
How quick did your PMs want to take you off meds? Mine wants to do it right away..but I am hesitant..what if surgery didnt work. Being my 4th one..I'm allowed to be a little skeptical!!
Thanks for reading.
