1st fusion 'May 2012 (anterior)
2nd fusion, bone spur removal and moved some nerves off bone Aug 13 (posterior)
I am wearing the external bone stimulator 4 hours a day.
I am wearing the SOMI brace all day and a soft collar for sleep.
I am 3 weeks out and am still taking muscle relaxers daily and pain med when needed. I am taking it very easy and will be off another month from work (at an elementary school)
My question is...ANY HINTS OR ADVICE SO I CAN MAKE SURE THIS WILL FUSE THIS TIME...?????
Any and all advice appreciated .
Thanks so much"
