Just a follow up on how things are going with my recovery and how things are progressing. I went and saw my NS today for my 1st post-op visit.. went great. Did x-rays before visit, and we actually saw bone growing where it should be( thanxs to the bone grafts), and it looks like im well im on my way to fusing correctly. I am so excited; my 1st fusion failed, in part to me starting to smoke again,and the rest to the way things were done operatively. I am scheduled to meet with the PT people for just 1 appt., then its on a home program.. I got released to go back to work starting monday, but with a couple of restrictions. I am going to be working on eggshells; i dont want to jeopardize anything since i have come so far.. good news for the weekend.. have a good one guys.
