Hi To All:
I have come here for quite a while andhave only read never posted anything. I feel like I am an old timer lol and no one knowes me.
After years of severe back problems cortizone shots and anyother numing thing they could stick into my disks it has come down to a fusion after having a disko and god can I say that anyone who thinks it does not hurt does not have true back probs as far as the disks are concerend.
Anyway on the 7th of December I will be haing a fusion on L4 L5 and S1 I the word scared does not even describe what I feel but I am so positive about this surgery and am looking forward to a full recovery and finding life again.
I just wantedto say hey and hope allof us who suffer with bad backs find peace at this time of year and god bless
