    Surgery, Spinal Fusion Surgery

Recovering from spinal fusion. The goal was to prevent more nerve damage. I had permanent damage before surgery. I think it is about the same as before so I am hoping surgery helped. I have pain often. I am taking PT & it may be helping some. Anti-inflammatory meds, Tylenol, heat & rest help with pain.
