Hi everyone!

I'm Dave from Indy. I had Spinal Fusion surgery Nov. 2004
I still have some problems but I am by far a lot better than before the surgery.
I was on the operating table(4 post) for over twelve hours and have a large hemotoma on the left side of my chest that has never gone away.
I still get leg cramps every once in a while usually at night when sleeping.
I do have some numbness in my left toes and downward movement is minimal.
Every once in a while I will have a spot on my right thigh that goes numb, mostly after standing for a long period.
Imho these are minor and I can deal with them.I am way better than I was before the surgery.
