Quick question please. My L5 S-1 Fusion surgery is scheduled for the 20th. During my last mtg w/the surgeon he said he "Follows" patients for 2 years after this procedure. That to me, seems like a long time. Does it sound reasonable to you all? In discussing the surgery also, he said a "Minamally invasive" fusion. I recall him using that term.Is there such a thing I wonder? IN 08 I had a 3 level ACDF and I actually fused ahead of schedule. I cannot recall now the duration but it was nowhere near 2 years.
