WELL FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE LIKE ME
HAD BAK L4-5 AND S1 ON 1/25/99 THE SORRIEST
DAY OF MY LIFE
SURGEON SHOULD NOT BE USING THIS TYPE OF CAGE
MY CAGE HAS SLIPPED OUT OF MY SPINE
AND CANNOT BE REMOVED W/O CRUSHING MY SPINE
I CAN'T SUE THIS GUY BECAUSE THIS IS SO BORDERLINE
AND NO DOC WILL STAND UP TO THE PLATE FOR ME
GOOD OLD BOY NETWORK
HAVE TINGLING AGAIN IN RIGHT LEG
DO NOT STAND FOR MORE THEN 10-15 MINS
AND WEAR THE BACK BRACE I WAS ONLY SUPPOSE TO WEAR
AFTER SURGERY
NEED IT DO MOST WORK IN HOUSE
HAVEN'T HAD A JOB SINCE 1997 AND FIGHTING
FOR SOCIAL SEC DISABILITY
ANOTHER JOKE, 3 YRS AND COUNTING
APPEALS UP TO 1998 ONLY MY HEARING WAS 1999 AND
THIS COLD HEARTED JUDGE GAVE ME A UNFAVORABLE
REPORT
SO BACK TO SQ.ONE
THIS BAK FUSION DOES NOT SEEM TO WORK WELL
AND ONLY A HAND FULL HAVE SUCCESS
WOULD LOVE A CLASS ACTION AGAINST THE MFG OF THIS
DEVICE, BUT CAN'T SEEM TO GENERATE ANY INTEREST
ON THIS SITE
STAY WELL
REPLY IF YOU WANT TOO
THE PAIN WILL STAY SORRY TO SAY AND YOU WILL
BE ON PAIN MEDS FOR A LONG, LONG TIME
TAKE CARE
