I have a question. Some of you say you had a two level, one level, three level fusion. What are the different levels? I go to my doctor this Friday so I will ask what I am having. Here is a little history....am 56 yrs old...golfing since I was 9..4 grown children...3 granchildren with 2 on the way..was a recreation director for seniors and alzheimers...on Good Friday last year I was on my way to the grocery store for my Easter Ham. At the light I was rear-ended by a drunk driver...hospital said I had a strain neck and back...went to chiropractor then mri's...have grade 2 spondy L5/S1 with severe bilateral stenosis....disc herniations of L-5 and a disc herniation indenting the interior aspect of thecal sac..bulging disc and annular tears involving L3-4...also have C5-6 disc herniation..not to mention the surgery I had in October for rotator cuff and labral tear...believe me, I have NEVER in my life had a backache. I think thats why this is so unbelievable to me. I did go to the chiropractor for months then had an epidural. My foot feels like its broke and have sciatica on both sides. I am going to back class at the hospital this thurs and a question/answer with the doc on friday. I know this is lengthy but this site helps me sleep at night.
God be good to all of you,
