Welcome Vitalspring....so sorry to hear that your daughter had fusion surgery....I had it done about 5 years ago and my back muscles are always tense and "firing"....can't do much about it. They don't know why, but it makes my day so much harder..... Why did she have the fusion? I had and still have spinal stenosis....along with DDD, DJD, Post Lamenectomy Syndrome, and a host of other problems.....
You are at the right place....we all have our own issues and we aren't Doctors...but we know a great deal.
