I had my first fusion surgery ALIF L4/5 two and a half years ago that never fused.
After 12 months and a new Surgeon I started wearing a BGS for a year,again no luck with the fusion.
Dec 27th of 2011 I went in for revision surgery PLIF L4/5.
I went in today for my 4 month check up and was told that I'm fusing. I've been waiting to hear those beautiful words for 2 1/2 years.
I still have pain and numbness issues but hey,one thing at a time. I will get thru this.
