I had a spinal fusion 3/2/09. L-5 disc removed. Does anyone who has had this done have to wear a brace? Does anyone out there have a bone stimulator?
My doctor told me to wear the brace everyday. When will I know if the fusion is successful and what is the recovery time? I'm 62 and have been out of work 6 weeks, I have 12 weeks to return or loose my job. Is there anyone else in this position?
