Fusions on back - Ever break?
So fearful of added surgery to fix this! I hope a quick CT will show what I did….late 60s, female, osteoporosis – how will anything hold from now on I wonder?!

Talk with your surgeon about utilizing bone growth proteins in your graft/s. My surgeon also utilized an internal bone growth stimulator with my last surgery. He was extra careful to make sure everything healed correctly. We added extra calcium and vitamin D to my daily vitamins, a lot of walking too. The battery of the bone growth stimulator has to come out after a year but a small procedure, well worth things healing correctly. Ask about your options but hopefully everything is ok!
