good day folks
i just had to have a fusion at t-12/l-1 and a laminectomy at t-11/12 site of a current fusion.
I haven't dealt with cages before and would like to hear from someone who's got them.
I've got a brace to try to keep me standing more upright but don't know it's that effective.
i had a bone graft from my hip.
How long should I expect before the fusion starts to take hold??
i also had rods put in, has anyone had clicking and popping noises?? I was told it was normal.
Every vertebrae from T-8 through L2 has either been broken, fused or has been screwed.
