I had Fusion surgery and a discectomy February 25th 2019. I am posting for those upcoming surgeries out there that mine so far has been successful. It resolved the slipped disc and stenosis I have been suffering with 7 years. I am able to walk again , something I could only do stopping every so often and am able to stand without leaning over or on something. I now am doing physical therapy to start strengthing the muscles I lost during the time I was unable to get around well, and therapy is going well. I am a 56 year old female , quit a job do to the loss of mobility . I am now taking this time and building strength and indurance back up, get back to healthier eating and thankful that I had so far a positive outcome. No NO it wasn't easy but ... if I can get thru it to the other end you can to!
