Back Problems board


I am 5.5 weeks post-L4/5 fusion and have upped my Vitamin D to 800 IU per day, also an extra 600 IU of calcium to help with the fusion. Before surgery I was taking Glucosamine/Chonroitin 1500mg/1200mg) twice daily but stopped after surgery because of all the other pills I was taking, e.g, Vicodin, etc. Is it worth going back to the Glucosamine/Chontroitin? Does it really do anything in terms of accelerating the healing and/or slowing down further problems? Thanks.

By the way, I am doing well and hope to get back to work in a couple of weeks.
