Circumferential Fusion



  • Thanks for your kind thoughts...Ii is still quite painful and my legs are giving me hell....Overall, Im doing much better...

    How are you going???? Well I hope

  • Hi Shelly,

    I saw my surgeon today and he is happy with my progress. At last my incision is healed and has lost the scab (I had problems with it not healing, then developed an infection.) I do still get some minor twinges, aches, twitches and stabbing pains in my legs, feet and toes, but nothing like before surgery. The surgeon says this is quite normal.
    I had x-rays taken, but won't get the results until my next appointment in 4 weeks time. He will be looking for signs of fusion and checking that the interbody cage and pedicle screws and rods are all in place.
    I have now signed up for physiotherapy and will start in a couple of weeks.

    I am definately better before surgery :-)
