Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
T10-Pelvis fusion (no cages) restrictions??
As the days get closer I get more nervous (and post more questions...sorry). I'm confident that this is the right decision, but I'm still scared. Anyone thats had a comparable fusion (lower lumbar) can you tell me after all is said and you are "healed" and moved on with life what are the restrictions you find yourself dealing with?
He's talked to me about how I can't curl into a ball anymore (which he said is bad posture regardless), but that I'll be able to bend at the waist like I can now.
My PCP did a pre-op this morning and since I'm young (30) she mentioned restrictions for sex positions (sorry for TMI I don't mean to be offensive!).
But that got me thinking just in general... I know during recovery almost everything is limited, but once it's all said and over what do you find yourself unable to do at all that you could do before?
And I don't mean anything extreme like skydiving or zip lining... fortunately I've done those things! Just daily things that I might not realize at this time...
THANKS SO MUCH!!
