Are all your surgeries due to failed fusion or over time you have needed more due to the stress on the other locations?
Thanks for all your input - I have never heard of a bone stimulator. Wonder why my doctor wouldn't have suggested this. I have found that you are to have a high protein diet after the surgery to stimulate bone growth and stop smoking. (which I have cut back a lot) My doctor never informed me of any of these things. Any input from your doctors after your surgeries?
I would have called today - but I am dealing with a bad headache and I am writing you and taking a hot shower and going to BED!
Thanks again - Happy New Year
