    My inability to raise my foot very nigh has to be because of the surgery because I had no problems before surgery. It's minor. I wouldn't like to give the impression it's a problem. Life is good...

    Glad I'm not the only one who can't lift my knees high any more. Even stepping into my undies is a trial. One hand dangling my undies, whilst trying to step into them, the other holding onto...

    Hi mkatz, I am fused T4 to S1 with pelvic fixation and am now 5.5 years out from surgery. I can assure you it gets easier. But tying shoelaces and cutting toenails is still difficult for me, but...

    If you're going to go the fruit juice route, warm some prune juice and alternate warm prune with chilled pear. If you want to bring in the big guns (as I needed, after 9 days) try Nulax. It worked...

    Fifa, it seems fairly normal in the US to have the central line put in the day or so before surgery. But my dr. didn't require it, however I woke up with one.

    Just wanted to add my best wishes...

    Yes, absolutely normal! I wanted to roll onto my side as well and asked the ICU nurse if I could. I was allowed but it was even more uncomfortable on my side, so I was rolled back! For a while, it...

    I was told I'd be having the wake up test as well. I worried I would be in pain and paralysed. My surgeon told me I wouldn't remember it and I don't. Please don't worry about it. I'm not even...
