... Thanks for your information. Sorry I didn't respond sooner...I was still on oxy when I posted and then forgot about it completely. I was fused at L5-S1 10 years ago and just had L4-L5 fused. My surgeon gave me an injection for the bursitis which worked pretty well. My hip still bugs me on days that I walk a lot but it was excruciating for a while. I think I mostly needed... (4 replies)
... t as cushions or shock absorbers, but they also allow us to bend and twist. When this movement is taken away as happens in fusion, the level above and below the fusion take the brunt of the impact. All soft tissue, muscle, etc. needs to learn new alignment and often how to work properly again. ... (4 replies)

My Wonky Spine.
May 26, 2018
... Hello, and thank you. Yes, I have been seen by two physicians - they concur. The lumbar surgery will be 4-6 weeks after the cervical. Cervical is apparently much more serious than the low back. Although I am having a lot of trouble with stability walking, the surgeon who will be doing the surgery said he wouldn't risk doing the lumbar first. I had a L5/S1 diskectomy... (5 replies)

... >>>> Hi Jacqee and welcome to the forum. Having had several back surgeries, I can tell you that recovery takes TIME. Once you are healed well, I see no reason you can't ride your bike and work out, tho you may have to change your routine to accomodate your back. Once you have had spinal surgery, it is important to always keep in mind that your back will never quite be the... (3 replies)

... Ginger, The best thing would be to invest in a work station where you can stand up instead of sit. I did this and it has made a tremendous difference in my low back strain. Plus it is just healthier to stand up. I get more exercise during the day too. I bought mine at staples. It is basically a high table with two leaves that you can fold in. Comes in black and cherry... (5 replies)
... Hello! It's been a few mths since I've posted here. On 4.26.2007 I had a level 1 fusion, L5-S1. My original diagnosis was 3 herniated discs in the lumbar area of my back. My surgeon decided to take a conservative approach and only fix the disc causing the most trouble. I'm still in pain all of the time. I called my surgeon's nurse today to get pain med refills only to be... (7 replies)

... Moldova....I had my second spinal fusion (L5/S1) at the Hospital for Special Surgery too. It's a wonderful hospital, my first surgery was at St Luke's in the city. I would absolutely travel a greater distance to go to the best hospital. I lived on Long Island at the time, and there were no shortage of hospitals around....but I didn't want just any hospital. I didn't think... (22 replies)

... I had an early version of a six-month follow-up from my surgery today. If you are a new reader, I had an anterior lumbar spinal fusion (L5/S1) on August 8, 2011. The surgery followed two years of increasing pain that I'd first chalked up to gym soreness but eventually became much more severe. Anyway, the goal is for the bones to fuse (hence the name "'fusion"). The doc... (5 replies)
