Hi Again, I thought that after my 2nd fusion in Dec of 2010 I would be good as new. Well, after trying everything including pain pump I ended up having another 2 level PLIF. It was a repeat of 2010 as it didn't fuse. I had surgery Sept 11, and so am about 2 1/2 weeks. Pain is still strong. Am still on diladudid for pain. Am walking with brace. Hopefully this time it will fuse or I have no choices left.
Just wanted to shout out cause its gonna be a long recovery again, No work or anything till after apt on Oct 28.
Take care, Iowarobin


  • Welcome back! Here's to hoping that your recovery goes smoothly and you find yourself feeling much better this time......
    Rest, take it easy and walk as much as you can.......

  • I am so sorry that you have needed another fusion.
    I remember you from 2010 and your pain problems. I had really hoped that your absence had meant that you were sorted and off to enjoy your life again.
    I really hope this will be a case of the third time being the charm.

    Now make sure that you don't over do it and rest to allow your body to heal and fuse.
