I am heading to Germany in 18 days and my surgery is in 25 days. Please say prayers and think of me, Kendra Kennedy, on Feb. 2, 2010. Dr. B. is replacing L3-S1 with Pro Disc-L artificial discs. I have read good and bad accounts of ADR and I feel like for me this is my chance at a better life. My husband and I have accepted that we will not be able to have baby number #2. I am so nervous about messing up the implants afterwards that he said if that is my worry, then lets not go there. We have a beautiful boy and all he ever will remember is the new and improved Mommy- Bionic Mom! This is true. Thanks so much for all of your insight. Any other words of wisdom would be appreciated. We all have our own journey through this pain, but it's nice to be able to talk to others with simialr issues. Before this webiste I felt so isolated and alone and depressed with my pain, now I feel supported. THANKS!!!
