Re: Lumbar fusion - post surgery questions

Good luck Cthom2. The surgery went fine. I never had any pain at the surgery site. Changing the dressing everyday was a real pain in the @**, though, ha. They will fit you for a brace and give you a grabber to pick up things. They also gave me a little gizmo to help put on my socks. I used a potty chair for about the first 2 or 3 weeks. I am 62 and I did so well that I dismissed PT before their time was up. Just be sure and ask lots of questions cause they forget to tell you everything, I'm sure.
