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.
