Returning to work after fusion

I know that the minimum standard recommended time for returning to work is around 3 months after surgery. I was just wondering if I could hear from other people on how long it personally took them to...

Re: It happened yesterday

Thanks for your reply Rod! After more time passed by I finally was able to go. Now being a tiny bit active (walking like you said) I believe is also helping.

So now I've been experiencing chest pain...

Re: It happened yesterday

Thank you for the replies and the information! The pain has seemingly started to get better, which is definitely a plus. But the one major thing right now is that I just can't kick the constipation....

Re: It happened yesterday

Thank you all for your replies! Currently I'm still in the hospital and may get the chance to even go home today (even though I barely feel ready). Getting in and out of the beds here have been tough...

It happened yesterday

After wanting this for so long, I finally had my fusion surgery yesterday. I had scheuerman's kyphosis at about 85 degrees, and my doctor informed me today that the curve is now between 45-50...

Re: Hey Everyone

Thank you both so much for your quick replies! I suppose that I'm getting quite antsy. Especially when I've been waiting for this for what feels like forever! I'm definitely ready to go and get that...

Hey Everyone

So the last time I was on here, I was looking for a specialist to help me and I had found one. Then he wanted me to give physical therapy a shot. So I did. Just to remind everyone, I have an 80...

Re: In need of help/advice!

Thank you guys for your responses. I do agree that physical therapy seems mostly pointless at the moment. I did go for my first session last Thursday and it left me in more pain than I'm already in!...

Re: In need of help/advice!

Thank you Robin. I was wondering how long I should try out the physical therapy for, and I agree that after a couple of months that I tell my doctor if it's not helping. I guess I'm also sort of...

Re: In need of help/advice!

Thank you Jay =). I agree, I'll do the physical therapy at least for a few months and see how things go. My doctor does at least want me to give it a fair shot. I wear loose shirts too, but mostly...

Re: In need of help/advice!

It is!!! I'm really happy! My doctor said that I could always come back earlier if I wanted, but he wants me to at least do some physical therapy. How long do you think I should try out the physical...

Re: In need of help/advice!

UPDATE: I was so nervous for my appointment today, but it actually went great! It turns out that the last doctor I saw didn't even measure my kyphosis curve right. The last one thought it was 75...

Re: In need of help/advice!

Hey guys, sorry I took a few days to reply. I decided to make an appointment at the Twin Cities Spine Center again but with a different doctor then the one I saw there over a year ago. I tried to get...

Re: In need of help/advice!

Now that you mention it Gilly, I don't think that I've seen any doctors that specifically specialize in Scoliosis/Kyphosis yet. I have just gone to a few orthopaedic clinics to see "spine" doctors....
