Well I had my 6 week checkup on the 11th which included a xray of my L5-S1 fusion. The Dr. said everything looked good so far, everything was still in place and comparing the xray I had the day after surgery to my new one you could see a little bone healing taking place. I now have to wait another 4 1/2 weeks before my next appointment at which time they will do a CT scan to see just how much fusing has taken place. If things look good I will start therapy and return to work (on a light duty basis I'm guessing).
For those of you who have had a single level fusion in the past, how much PT did you have to do? I only ask this because I really cant afford to pay for the co-pays for each session and gas while missing a couple of hours of work each PT session.
