I had my 3 year check up with Dr. Lenke today and all is well. He pointed out bone growth in the lumbar area which he said is the hardest area to fuse. Everything looked fine and Dr. Lenke said he'd see me in two years. Although I expected to get a good report since I haven't (thankfully!) had any issues, I was relieved that the x-rays looked fine. I didn't meet anyone from the forum but corresponded with a few ladies who were also post-op and doing well. Dr. Lenke is our hero!
