    I am friends with Jenee on FB and she had her revision surgery this past Friday, November6. I check her page daily as her husband is posting updates. So far so good.

    Asheville

    Wendy, I left Asheville in 1985. I live in Atlanta now. Dr. Timothy Yoon at Emory did my surgery.

    Are you from Asheville?

    No, I didn't need to deal with pain management. I was very lucky in...

    Asheville, NC

    Hi Wendy!

    I am from Asheville too! I went to Dr. David Capiello in Asheville back in the 70s when my mother first noticed my back didn't look quite right. I was sent to Duke for further evaluation...

    Tightness in back

    I am two and a half years post op and still have the tightness. I have tried exercise, massage, chiropractor, nothing seems to alleviate it other than sitting or lying down. It is particularly...

    Massage post op

    I have found both a PT and a massage therapist in the Tucker/Atlanta area there are AMAZING! Both are very knowledgeable and both encourage me to do things that I did not think were possible. I...

    We were very lucky. Like someone else wrote, not a lot of health questions. It was through work that I got the insurance.

    Jess, perhaps you are referring to long term disability insurance. That is not expensive and kicks in after a certain amount of time of not working. Long term care is for when you need to go to a...

    Tightness

    Hi!
    I know exactly the feeling you are talking about and have it as well. There is another thread that addresses this as the bear trap. I am almost two years post op and have that sensation in...

    Me too!

    Hi Julia Ann!
    I have those same jolting sensations and I am 19 months post op. I like your theories and they make sense. I'm just sitting here hoping this nonsense will eventually stop. Sometimes I...

    Stiff Back

    Hi Laura!

    My surgery is no where near as extensive as yours was but I do have that board-nailed-to-back feeling. Probably not quite the same thing as you but I am also frustrated by it. Sometimes...

    Susan, please try to remember that everyone is different. I am an avid side sleeper and slept on my side immediately after surgery. I had the nurses and my husband running every two or so hours to...

    Hip, low back pain

    Hi Evelyn!

    I am about 18 months post op and have had sharp, shooting, burning pains on my low left side right above the buttocks. It just started about a month ago. I've been very active for about...

  17. Tightness just a sign of healing

    Geez, who would have thought that healing would take so long. It's a complicated surgery, I get it, but 18+ months??

    Went to see my surgeon last week just to make sure everything was okay. Had...

    I continued to have a cup of coffee daily after my surgery. I have not heard anything about it affecting fusion. Maybe it inhibits calcium absorbtion. I drink it anyway ; )

    Post surgery diet

    The only thing I really focused on was getting plenty of protein and calcium to help the fusion.

    I've never fired a gun but cannot imagine being able to do it four months post op. If the recoil is anything like my husband described to me, it would be painful and quite possibly detrimental.

    I definitely wouldn't consider removing the hardware unless there was an issue and that was the only way to correct it.

    Besides, I don't think the insurance would pay for the surgery if the...
