I sure am glad to be back home but good gosh almighty I feel like I've been gutted :sick: I actually got home yesterday evening so I spent 4 days in the hospital. My back feels 95% better but the front of me is sure hurting, My incision is 7 inches long. My bowels are waking up and I'; passing gas but that's all I'm passing. I'm hoping things should happen soon
)( But anyway, I'm home, doing well and I have Z-E-R-O restrictions if you can believe that :T My surgeon said the hard will keep the spacer in place. All he said was if it hurts too much don't do it. He also said the more I move about the faster the bones will grow. But for now I'm gonna rest because I feel wiped out!
ALIF April 2011 but it turns out I broke before it barely fused.
