Re: Lumbar fusion - post surgery questions

L5/S1 herniated disc and collapsed on the left side. Pinching nerves. They did a fusion, took out facet joint, bone graft, shaved off the herniation. Have rods, one is longer I think he said to help correct scoliosis. He had told me he would go in from the side. I have one long scar in the middle and two little ones on both sides. The nerve pain is basically gone in the left leg except when I sneeze. Overall I'm better than before surgery but not where I want to be.
