I had my 360 fusion on Tuesday. Apparently it went as clean as a whistle. No problems. Surgery was at 7ish and i was in my room by 1 (so i'm told. I don't have any memory of this) The first night was horrid. Very painful and rough. I couldn't keep my eyes open to save my life. I had no idea what anyone was asking/saying. Wednesday afternoon - evening was better. WHen the pain meds started to wear off I would wake up enough to converse with peopoe and maybe watch a show or two on TV. The 2nd post op day was even better. I realized that I was able to lay on my side to sleep and this allowed for more restful naps. Today is day 3 and I'm being allowed to go home. I'm quite shocked that they were in such a hurry to send me home. I'm still in a lot of pain, espeically when the pain meds wear down. have bouts of very tight muscles. PT and OT have both been in to see me briefly and showed me how to get dressed and such. I have a feeling some of the twisting and bending i'm not suppopse to do are going to be tough to not do. I have found myself bending to put socks on or picking something up that I'm not suppose to.
Each day hopefully will get better and better. I only had 1 level done, so my surgery wasn't as serious as some of yours. I'm not being sent home with a walker or bacbrace. Just some good ol' meds.
I will keep everyone updated on my progress!
