Well everyone I had my hardware removed from my L4-5 this afternoon. It was supposed to be done on an outpatient basis but the doctor decided to have me stay at the last minute. Because of the problems I had after my fusion he just wanted to be on the safe side.
I got to keep my hardware & it's pretty scary lookin at how HUGE it actually is.
I'm hurting REALLY bad right now but it is a totally different hurt than after my fusion. Mostly muscle & incision pain but it's bein controlled pretty good with the pain medication. Should be going home tomorow afternoon to finish the healing process.
According to the dr I am 100% fused. He did a lot of exploring while he was in there so he says I'll be VERY brused so not to be suprised. I'm gonna try to get some sleep. Talk at you all later
wait I wanna post some pictures if someone can tell me how that would be great
