  • Welcome to the site, I am sure many people will be able to help you with your questions. I'm fused only from L4-S1, so my experiences would not be that helpful. Good Luck.
  • Hey retiredbosn,

    I am also new here and am probably looking at a L-4 L-5 and L-5 S-1 fusion. I am getting conflicting answers on my mobility afterward and wether or not I will be able to continuw my career as a fireman. Anything you can tell me about your Lumbar fusions would help. Thanks!!
