I'm 2 weeks post op for my anterior part of my 360 fusion and 1 1/2 weeks post op for the posterial part.
I took my dressings off today and I can see and what feels like the screws! Is freaking me out to say the least and I did think laying on my back was uncomfortable to say the least.
Is this just swelling or something I will get used to?
Any experiences from you lovely people? Would be great to hear your stories!
