Needless to say my neuro says one thing about the recovery, and what I am reading here, I am learning quite the opposite, or really what I imagine the recovery must be. I live alone, and my children are all out on their own. My children asked if I... (19 replies)
... Had the same surgery and although not pain free at 6 months, did not have high pain while standing for that time. Altough, it did bother me stand long times. Still does, too some extent. I would have it looked at. Ken (1 replies)
... I had surgery on January 17th 2011, one level PLIF fusion at L5-S1 with titanium cage, rods and screws. My original pain is gone and I am able to work out and walk with no pain, but I can't stand for more than 15-20 minutes without extreme pain. I get extremely stiff and I feel like there is a brick in my back. As soon as I go sit down, the pain goes away. Could this be from... (1 replies)

... Monas, :wave: I had fusion L5/S1, posterior with screws and rods. It is a bit unnerving not to be Xrayed and to be "done" with it already. I am the only one on the board so far that I've seen to be let go this early, with no films. The only thing I can say, is that my doctor has been so conservative (up until now!)with my recovery....I didn't get into a car at all for... (12 replies)
