Lumbar Fusions Input Needed
#3
Hello MJC,

10-05, L5-S1 fused with harware. The fusion allowed me me to walk again. I consicider it a sucess. I have other meidal issues related to the spine, but I can walk. I was in the hospital for about six days. The worst part was when they took me off the morphine. That was taken care of with pills for about two days and then the severe pain was gone. The healing time for the first part was about six months. The bone graph take time to grow and fuse the vertabre together. It took about a year before it actually fused.

Once the surgery is over and you are home. (provided you heal as I did) With in a few days you will be up and about. The bordum will cause that. I think it took me about two days before I walked down the street to talk with a friend.

I hope the info helps.
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.
