    Sorry to hear you are still in so much pain! :( Spinal Fusion is a major operation and it takes time...I had my Fusion in 09" and a revision in 10". 7 months is still a little early give yourself a 12-24 months to feel like the fusion worked. I know it can get very discouraging being in pain every day! Just take each day as it comes...
