Well i think i'm in for a major setback!
In 3/10 had a 2 level tlif at l4l5/l5s1, with 2 rods and 6 screws.
In 8/10 had a CTscan, and showed no progress.
In 1/11 had a CTscan and showed complete fusion at l4l5, but non-fusion at l5s1.
So today i had another CTscan w/contrast, and from what i'm seeing a non-fusion again.
And i compared it to my disc from 1/11, and they look the same.
So on 7/6/11 go see my NS, and he already told me as did my PM that if this CTscan showed a non-fusion i will need another surgery.
That will be an ALIF, with a plate to stabilize my spine.
For numerous financial reasons i did not need to see this.
If i had fused i would be able to start the settlement process with work comp. and bought a different house for my daughter and me before the bank forecloses on this one.
But if i'm correct and i did'nt fuse thats all gonna be put on the back-burner, and i'm looking at another surgery, knowing at any time i could get a letter from the bank giving me the 30 day notice to get out.
So now been paying alimony for 3 1/2 years, and gonna go talk to another lawyer to see if i can get the alimony stopped finally.
O well my kids love me, thats what counts.
But not gonna get to upset until i see my NS, and he confirms whats on the CTscan, the bad, or good.
But i believe it will go toward the bad.
Sorry for ramblin.
