Ok I posted the first one wrong, lets try this again. Good morning. I had my 12 week check-up from my L-2-S-1 fusions. He said all the screws (12) and the rods were in place. No fusing as yet. He said 6-12 months. I have to continue to ware my brace 24/7. I can attempt to drive short distances, I can swim in my sisters pool without the brace and best of all I can fly to my daughters. YEA! In the house I walk most of the time with out the walker. The Dr. said I can walk outside with a cane but be careful. Distance he still wants me using the walker. My good leg still has lots of nerve pain but is getting better. So all is well in my world.
