I had my 6 week followup yesterday and I don't have to wear the back brace and I have no more restrictions! I questioned my surgeon about not being fused yet but he told me that since I have a PEEK implant with 3 screws (put in 3 yrs ago from the front) between the L4 & L5 and now the screws and rods on the backside that it's not going to move and will fuse in time! WHAT A RELIEF to be out of the brace
ALIF April 2011 but it turns out I broke before it barely fused.
L4-L5 posterior fusion December 2013
