I just had a 360 spinal fusion of L4-L5 and L5-S1 about five weeks ago now. It was a lot more painful than I thought it was going to be. Everything seems to be going well and the pain is certainly manageable now. In fact, I think I get around and do more than I was able to before the surgery.
Been reading this site for awhile both pre and post surgery. Very friendly community with a lot of good information.
