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?
