Hello All,
I am michele and i had a 360 fusion on 3,3,10. i went to the Texas ABC medical Dr ABC, Love him. they went through the front and then did 2 small cuts on the back one on each side of the spine. God the first 3 days were the worst pain of my life and i have had 2 kids by C-section. It has been a week since i came home and i feel better every day. I have been walking alot not sure if that is good or not. Think i over did it for the last 2 day i my tail bone and hips hurt the worst tonight.

Has anyone has one for these, the whole keeping on the bandages for 2 weeks are driving me crazy. The Tape makes me Itch bad and the thickness of the bandages hurt worst then the wound.

Now for the stomach wound geese that bugs me the most its like a kid came out again. Don’t cough lol. But i Love my doctor and T(ABC) (Texas ABC Medical).

If there is any advice that anyone can give me to help me speed this recovery Please ill take it. And one more

I am having the worst time stopping smoking i crave a hit by 5 pm everyday and that is all i want a hit. I know that it is not good for the fusion but how do i stop..
