Re: Fused at 13 months!

thanks Roy, I will listen to the doc.. I just expected I would be able to lift a bit more. but I have no desire to have another back surgery so I will be careful.

at 6 months I was just showing the beginnings of fusion - it was a light milky area in the x-rays around the cages. but dont worry if you cant see it, some folks take longer to begin and some x-rays equipment doesnt show it as well as others.

best of luck during your visit!

Emily, dunerkat - thanks! I am celebrating! I was worried that my fusion had stopped or would take the full 18 months but God had a nice surprise waiting for me

Im sure Ill do fine in a new career. its probably going to be rough changing careers at 45 but Im confident that it will work out for the better in the end.

take care!
