I had the L5-S1 Fusion with cage and bone graft July 23rd 2008. When I awoke from surgery it wasn't so much of me saying," ouch my back!" it was,"what happened to my left leg?
I had 4 screws 2 rods and cage spacer put in via through my back instead of abdomen.
I have so much to share as now I'm facing one side of hardware removal June 3rd 2009.
Accident was Novemeber 2006.
I'll explain further I wanted to introduce myself first and possibly explain or help those with what my experiences are now and will be after removal. :H So hello everyone!
