Protien supplements for back fusion??? Anyone?

Hello everyone, 

9 weeks post L5-S1 fusion.   I asked my surgeon about protien supplements to help my fusion process.  His response, "there isn't a whole lot of science behind protien supplements.   I am not saying to not take them.  If you do, buy the best quality protein supplements.   But i suggest stick to a lean diet heavy in vegetables".

That being said, I have been eating a ton of green vegetables and eating lean meats.   I have just bought a highly consumer rated organic whey protein supplement.  

Does anyone have any experience with protien supplements and back fusion?
