The procedure that was completed competed was a L-5 & S1 Lamenectomy & Spinal Fusion (2 rods & 4 screws) due to a herniated disk and PARS defect. It's only been 6 weeks since surgery and I've had no complications or problems.

I was up and walking the next day with a walker. I was discharged and have been recovering from home since. I've been amazed how well things have progressed and I"m now walking on a treadmill each day about 1.5 miles at a 2.5 mph pace...
