I am closing in on 4 weeks post Lumbar Fusion and have been reading these forums almost daily with questions I have had and figured it was about time that I joined. I am a 30-year-old woman who had a lumbar fusion of my L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs. I had quite a bit of pain and trouble coming out of surgery and during my stay at the hospital for the first week but since I have returned home I feel like it has been a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. I am feeling like I am currently headed in the positive direction. Wanted to introduce myself and to say thank you to everyone’s posts that I have already read and who have helped me along the way. I will be posting more specific questions I have in the future and will begin to follow along and give any advice I can as far as the experience I have had.
In advance, it is nice to meet all of you!
