Recent T 10 - L8 Fusion Are there other happy patients?

 I am happy to report that my spinal fusion which was on December 27 has caused no bone pain .  The only discomfort I noticed was the healing of the scar and the muscles  getting used to standing.   I can now walk more than 50 feet   I have more energy than I've had in over two years and every day I can do more things.   I am very happy with my surgery and I look forward to a long event full life.  

 Oh...another positive would be that I only took my pain medication three weeks and somewhere along the fourth week I switched off to eight hour Tylenol. It is now eight weeks and sometimes I even forget to take a Tylenol.  I believe the Tylenol is a crutch.   It is hard to believe that I am pain free!  Can anyone share other positive stories?  


  • Hi did you have T10-L5 done and can you tell us a little bit more about the diagnosis and treatment you received thanks!

    I had T4 to L5 fused and I'm hoping I'll feel glad I did it at some point. I'm 2 weeks out tomorrow.
