Its been 3 weeks since I had my 360 fusion at L5-S1. I woke up today just amazed at how much better I feel. The steriods helped my leg pain that showed up after surgery, surgical pain has almost vanished...wow! My only real issue that I have now is stiffness in my back, which I know will go away eventually. I can almost walk normally (I had that post surgery akward wobble). Sleeping is great....I can sleep in any position and roll over without surgical pain now. Now that I am feeling better, I have to keep telling myself to take it easy. The brace I wear will remind me hopefully! After spending much time reading all the posts on this site, I never would have guessed I'd feel so good at 3 weeks. Maybe its becuase I only had 1 level done. Who knows, but I was scared that I"d be down and out for many weeks, or even months!
Now that I've bragged on my success, I'll probably have some horrid setback. That sort of stuff always happens to me : )
