  • Ron.

    Good luck with surgery. While anyone hates to have to go through this a second time, if there is anything positive you know what to expect post surgery. Hopefully this will take care of your pain and issues your having. Good luck with surgery and post as soon as you can and give a update.
  • Ron! Wishing everything works out this time around!
    Are you using original surgeon or 2nd opinion, just curious?
    One last question did the bone growth stimulator work at all?

  • Hope the surgery goes to plan and that this time, things will heal and fuse as expected.

    Do let us know how you get on.
  • thanks for the well wishes @ Virginiap yes I am useing the same Dr. and the bone growth stimulator did not do anything it was a waste of money. And thanks everyone for the well wishes hope the same for all u keep well out there

  • You must be so relieved that you're starting to feel better than before.

    Wishing you the very best for your recovery and keep taking it easy - the usual resting and walking and BLT restrictions.

    Keep letting us know how you're going.
