Three months after my latest fusion I got on my commute bike (more upright position) and rode to the grocery store. It was less than 5 miles round trip but I could have been back racing my bike I was so happy. Little things these days...
I am hoping my steroid injection last week worked. I am still feeling pain but not as much and no pain at all on the bike. With my other fusions I was back riding in about a month so this is really exciting for me!!
