Hi everybody
I am three weeks post ACDF. I am wearing a hard collar 24/7 and a Bone growth stimulator 4 hours a day. To cover all the bases, I am curious if anyone was to told take any supplements. Fusion is my one goal now.

    I've always taken my regular vitamins. But on top of that I've always taken calcium 3 to 4 times a day. It's good for the bones but doesn't stay in your system very long. I don't know if it helps or not. But I do know I fuse very fast! I'm at 4 1/2 mo. and I'm over 60% fused already.

  • Will do. I talked to my surgeon as well. He said he takes calcium and Vit. D. He recommends it for everyone even if it is not proven to help fusion
