Hey all just wanted to give everyone an update. I had my L5/S1 fused on Wed the 15th of this month. I had the Dysness system put in almost ten months ago to the day. The first two weeks or so after the first surgery I was bed ridden and could barely walk. I was in the hospital for approx. 4 days with that surgery as well. After my fusion on the 15th I was out of the hosp the next day and im walking over 2 miles a day now and I'm less tehn two weeks post op. My pain is at almost 0 and I feel so much better. So basically the point of this post is to let everyone know that in my mind if you have the choice go with a fusion over the dysness. Hope that everyone has a great pain free day.



  • That is wonderful news that you are doing so well with your fusion. Thanks for posting with the good news.

    Now that you are feeling better, please do not get carried away and try to do too much. Just remember that slow and steady wins the race.

  • Hank,

    It was great to see you in chat again. I am so glad to hear that your surgery went so well and so much better than the first one!! Thank you for sharing the great news!!

    I agree with Gwennie- Don't overdo it!!

    Take Care Hank !!!
