    Hi and welcome to the support group -

    you had responded to my post of yesterday. Your response started out with a couple of lines then many blank spaces and the the continuation of your response.

    Just to let you know - I usually sit in either my recliner or in bed. If I sit in a chair I sit with a pillow under me. I cannot have anything touching my lower back - even a pillow so I cannot sit back.

    I just had my 2nd fusion done 12/4 and the surgeon said it would be 12 months maybe longer for post op care/recovery. He won't refer me to PT until after he releases me. It's really only been 8 weeks and I shouldn't compare it to my first fusion (Failed).

    I just wanted to welcome you - let us know more about your spine problems~~

    Take care ~~ God Bless ~~

    ~~ Joy ~~
