Thank-you for this great web-site. I have found so much information and practical help, not to mention the support in what feels an isolating issue. I am a 47yr old woman, married with 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren. An accident at work (19/12/07) has meant a confusing journey of pain to try to get a diagnosis and treatment. Looking to have spinal fusion (L4/5-L5/S1) and cage and instrumentation.Just wanted to say Hello and Thanks for ongoing info. and practical suggestions.
