Hey y'all! Here's a quick question for the crowd. Monday, I had my one month post op check up, which by the dr's account, went well. One thing he said that I didn't think about 'till just now, though. When we looked at the x-rays on the lightbox, I asked him did he see any sign of fusion yet. Almost forgot..I had an L5-S1 PLIF done. Anyhow, he said he didn't see fusion yet, but that it might take a month or longer to see anything. Cool, but the part I am concerned about, and almost forgot: he said it may take longer to fuse and then again, some people may never have a fusion. Hmmm.. I know it's early to worry about that, but if I never had the bone fuse, what would that mean? I'd be held together by the screws and rods for the rest of my life or what? Any thoughts out there? I don't know how that slipped my mind until just today, but it did.
Y'all stay warm
