... I doubt very much that Celebrex was the culprit. It is the one drug that can be taken after fusion as it has a slightly different chemical make-up from NSAIDs. For whatever reason, sometimes the fusion just doesn't take and bone does not grow, or grow in the right places. I would agree with your assessment that you should gather another opinion or two just to be sure that... (5 replies)
... further surgery, considering all the risks, and I will definitely seek second and third opinions. I could live with the way I am now, it is just so far from the recovery I had hoped for, and I would need some kind of assurance that there was a significant chance of achieving a favourable outcome. ...

... ligiously do the exercises three times a day. I have not given up all hope of getting my life back, but I am gradually coming to terms with the fact that a full recovery is unlikely.

... Hello MK, Apparently both parts of the screw are still aligned, so the preferred option is to simply leave things as they are. The rod is the major player from a stability point of view, and the hope is that the facets will simply fuse of their own accord in time. L5/L4 are as they were before the op, which is good news. I gather it might take a year before things settle... (71 replies)
... letely gone. I know it is tough, and awful if you can't sleep! It is particulalry worrying if it is a new pain, but this seems to be par for the course in this recovery process! ... (71 replies)

... I am very pleased to hear that all has gone well thus far. I know I found it such a relief just to know that the first hurdle had been passed successfully. I, too was happy to spend three nights at the hospital. The first night my blood preesure fell low, which I gather happens, and they were concerned about my pulse rate, but that is normally pretty low. I was warned... (71 replies)
... Thank you very much for your reply! I believe you are giving much insight to the actual recovery. I, like you, read all the testimonies on the website and have high expectations. The closer it gets the more "real" it gets! I am trying to prepare my husband and daughter that this might be a bigger deal than what we have been lead to believe. I have told my employer I will...

... have updated you sooner. My X ray confirms that the rod and facet screws are in the right place, and not bent, broken, or twisted. My surgeon considers that my recovery progress is about right, and that the sciatic type pains will be transient. ... (71 replies)
