just hoping this continues. Hubby just realized today that he has not been bothered by either constipation or diarrehia now for at least a month. Everything is normal and it has not been normal for several years. Could the fusion have slowly mended the bowel problems he has been burdened with for years? We're climbing the slope to good heath slowly and cautiously and hoping that he has no further setbacks. We don't know if he is fusing yet and won't until late January but he is pain free and very mobile. I'm almost afraid to say this for fear that something will happen but this Christmas is going to be so much better than last I think and we are rejoicing. Thanks for the wonderful support we have found here.


  • Howdy Beaver,

    The human body is an amazing machine. I think if his bowels have been behaving for a month (and it hasn't done that in the past?), keep those fingers crossed because maybe something for the good *did* change from the surgery. If that is what is going on, so happy for your hubby!! :)
