Hello there. Two weeks ago I had my L2-L4 vertebrae fused. I opted for the titanium cages and so far am very pleased. I am only 19 and a sophmore in college so I needed to do whatever I could to get back to school. After only two weeks I am able to walk as good as every with minimal pain, go up and down steps easily, sit up for about2 hours at a time, etc. I am planning on returning to classes next Wednesday and I think I will do fine. My surgery was done at the Cleveland Clinic and we were extrememly impressed with every aspect of the whole process. Where will your husbands be? I work for as a one-on-one therapists for children with Cerebral Palsy. Most of my clients require being changed, fed, bathed, etc. so I can't go back to work for another 3 weeks. I had my first set of follow up x-rays yesterday, and so far the fusion is right on schedule. It will take three months to see if will fuse correctly, so far the outlook is GREAT!
There are TONS of things I would like to tell you about the surgery, but I am going to hold off and see if you have any specific questions. If so, please feel free to e-mail at Love2Flip@aol.com
