bone density test

I had a multiple lumbar fusion then the doctor ordered the bone density machine to make sure the fusion would be solid.
The surgeon said absolutely NO Ibuprofen cause the bone graph wont fuse that well & could cause more damage & redue the fusion. I had to wear this device for 60 or 90 days but the bone graph fused great so maybe ask your doctor about It.

Re: bone density test

Yes, you are correct. Anyone with a spinal fusion needs to avoid anything with aspirin in it while the bone graft is growing and fusing. I think the machine you used is called a bone growth stimulator.
