My NS has recomended Interspinous device surgery instead of a fussion. He is useing a newer device that attatches better then the X-stop & has had great success so he says with it. So we are going to give it a try, since it is minumally invasiv & I can be back to work with less time off for recovery. He said the X-Stop had too much movement when attached & that may have been the cause of so many failures I've been reading about.Anyway I have my surgery on the 24th & can't wait to get it over with. I've been reading & on this forum since June of last year & I'm finally getting around to getting something done. I've saved up $$$ for what the ins doesnt pay & for my time off of work. I've been a truck driver for 33 yrs & would like to finnish out my career in 5 yrs with less pain.
