It has been 3 1/2 months since the surgery.
My doctor changed practices and I am FINALLY able to see him.
He is very pleased with the progress and pointed to the bone fusion in L5 and L4.
Please see the image that shows the L2-L3 is not fused yet but the lower ones are.
The doc explains that this is how the fusion occurs – the bones fuse from the bottom up. Hum. Who knew.
The problem is … my foot and leg are numb. This is what they felt like last Fall and what led to the surgery in the first place. The doc advises me that this can change.
Today I am frustrated.
We will see.
