... I had my 2nd spinal fusion (the first was 22 years ago--L5 S1) at L4 L5 last March. I was finally allowed to start physical therapy in Dec. 09 and did that for 2 months.

... I suspect my situation is much different than yours, having been fused at a young age (20's) and having 20+ GOOD years, post-op. Only after I turned 50 did the real problems arise (hip pain, etc.) However, getting back to your situation, if you had arthritis in a joint prior to your fusion, you're always going to have it - arthritis isn't something that is "cured".
