  • Luckily I am limited to lumbar spine, but all 6 (that includes S1) are fused. Hope my neck is not next. I did have some trauma to it when I was younger. So far thoracic and cervical look good. But you never know. I never expected to have one fusion much less 3. Hope all is well with you.


    Spinal stenosis, spondolysis, spondolythesis, L4/L5 laminectomy, L4/L5 360 fusion with instrumentation, L1 to L5 fusion with instrumentation and bone graft from hip, L1/S1 fusion with replacement disc put in and a nice bolt from my spine to my pelvis; PT, accupuncture, prolotherapy, many cortisone injections, 4 rhizotomies. Currently on tramadol.

    It was good to come across your post here. You have been so kind to me with my..stuff. :)

    I've been hit or miss with the computer since I just moved past Monday. It was great telling people what to do..organizing the move and paying people!
    It made me feel like I was at work again.. accomplishing something. Ahhh..oh well! :)

    Would you like to be buddy?...and I would so also benefit and enjoy like the private messages, too.
    I'm not too sure how to use chat..never did it..

    Hope you are doing well today and so glad for this site also. Everyone so awesome!
