    Good luck with the surgery, Kara.

    Do you have to do rehab during your recovery?

    I'm sorry you have had all this surgery but it is so good they can fix these things.

    Best regards,

    This seems like the key to avoiding another surgery. We have a woman on the group who was fused I think 6 years ago to L4 and her disc below that is fine. Hopefully now that your daughter's spine...

    Karen,

    Great progress! Almost done. It's great that the surgeon is so focused on the fusion length.

    Best of luck.

    Kara, I'm so sorry to hear this is still so painful.

    Do you know how you broke your foot? I'm sorry if you already mentioned it.

    Take care.

    The many questions in here probably can only be answered by Linda or a surgeon.

    If your leg pain is gone then the L4-S1 bone-on-bone section might have autofused and you might not need more fusion...

    You can try sending these radiographs to Dr. Lenke or Dr. Hey to see if they will give an opinion.

    Oh Jess,

    He is home now and on the mend. I REALLY hope this is the last surgery for the little baby bunny. Bunnies do not understand these things.

    He is such a little doll!

    coolblue,

    Glad you checked in. Very sorry about the progression.

    Linda, I was confused about the point of a wheelchair being a solution to the type of pain that drives people to try surgery. How is accepting a wheelchair in lieu of surgery going to solve the pain?
