First off I Would like to say to ever one out there. I am a new to this wonderful forum but not new to back pain. I have had back pain for 25 years and I am 54 now. I had a microdiscectomy at L5 S1 21 years ago and was forced to retired from my job as a Fire Captian and have made it until now with a tolerable amount pain and now it’s time for a tune up. The pain is problem and my surgen is recommending L5 S1 disk removal and the Titan Spine Titanium ENDOSKELETON fuison at both levels. He says I am a perfect canadate, I am in great shape and all the other disks are in good shape. Any information and support would be Great.
