Hi to one & all, I'm Ian from Dorset in England.
I am two years post 3 level fusion L3-S1, two titanium cages, bone grafts, "x stop" 4 rods & 8 screws. I had the nerves cut in my left foor during the surgery (which I knew could be a risk) which has left me with a permanent walking disability. Like a few peoples stories that I have read, I did too much too soon after surgery, I was at home in 45 hrs & back in full time work in 6 weeks & re-injured myself within a few months.
I'm still living (after 4.5 years) on MST morphine with a few tylex thrown in for good measure & trying to work 6 days a week.
