Re: artificial disk question
Where are you located? Even though the ADRs are in studies, they are being done at various places. I had the Maverick disc replacement (L5-S1) done last December at the Hughston Sports Hospital in Columbus, Georgia. I am participating in an FDA study on this disc. Even though the disc has opened up the disc space, I am still having immense pain in my lower back and LOTS of pain in my left buttock, left leg and foot. The foot drives me crazy. Would I do it over again? Probably, because the disc space needed to have something done - however, I am still longing for the day when I can say that I am pain free. Good luck with whatever decision you make.
