... Hi Mark! :wave: I'm really glad that you are giving me some hope. I too keep thinking of scar tissue and all.

... Hi Mistina, Remember me? I was exactly where you are when I was 3.5 months postop. I was extremely worried that the surgery had failed. It seemed that every time I went to PT I had 2-3 painful days following. It too a little over five months for me to feel like I was finally healing. Hang in there.

Failed Surgery!

... My doctor's test results: There are no changes compared to the May study. No indications for additional surgery. I have recommended treating his symptoms for now.

I told him that he may need to retire and... (18 replies)
... :wave: Thank you kindly MEGSS. Like you I have a big incision 6 inches. Also disappointed about the surgery outcome. I did not rush into this surgery and clearly communicated to the ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON during office visits that I did not want any major surgery with any hardware implanted in my back.
