I wanted to share my experience -
I have had a spondolysistheis fracture at L5 S1, bone on bone L5 S1 herniation - scoliosis
I had a 360 degree lumbar fusion 3 weeks ago and have ZERO back pain!!!! My surgery was very sucessful at this point.
I am up walking 2 miles per day, stopped smoking, lost 10 lbs - very happy with the out come.
I was in total shock when my surgeon told me what he wanted to do - I was scared and stressed. The surgery was tough and surgical pain intense - but everyday gets easier!
I went to the doctor last week and got to see x-rays of my new spine and I am impressed my back has hardware - screws and bars -
I am happy I did this surgery and hope everyone has the success I am having. Please pray for my continued success.
