Had my 9 month visit with my surgeon. He was really wonderful to talk with, and hated that I am having such severe symptoms. He did an xray, and just got the results.
I am finally beginning to fuse...Praise God!!!!! It has given me such a ray of hope in this dismal tunnel. My hardware is still intact...YEA! I'm 78 days wearing the bone growth stimulator.
I have to the endoscopic lysis of adhesions again in 13 days, and desperately need some relief from the pain and numbness. My PM doc is not giving me any guarantees, but hopes that there will be some improvement from the procedure.
My surgeon is still enforcing the no bend, twist, turn and weight limit 10 lbs until my fusion is more mature, which is not a problem since those things cause severe pain anyway.
Hope...it's an amazing thing!
Thanks for everyones support these last few months...still a long way to go thru this muck!
