I signed up here b/c it has been very valuable resource for info and helps me understand what a bad back is all about..
My John has recently undergone an emergent fusion from L3 through T10, now he has fusions & hardware from S1-T10.
My question at the moment is that somehow we both missed or forgot about the NO NSAIDS rule post -op and he took his Diclofenac 75 mg. 2x a day for a couple of weeks post op until I read that it was a no-no! At no time did any of his Dr's tell him to not take including his neurosurgeon. Wondering if this might have caused his fusion any harm?
