I have not seen a December surgery post yet. If there was one I am sorry. I had my 360 fusion L4-S1 with all the hardware on 12-9-10. I have had an ok recovery so far. The worst of my recovery was a week of no bm s but other than that no problems so far. I am currently still in quite a bit of pain if I miss a dos of meds. Staying indoors since the weather hear in KY has not been the greatest to get out and do any walking is not easy. I have never been inside for a whole day as long as I can remember. I hope everyone has rapid recovery and as pain free as can be.
