Just thought I should post this for those heading into surgery soon! I was on the site ALL THE TIME, pre-surgery, just looking for other people's experiences. I remember it being said that those who do well, don't usually keep posting, so things can look a little negative.
Just wanted to say that my fusion is behind be and I feel better than I have in a decade.
Hope those how are still struggling find some freedom from their pain and those yet to have surgery, GOOD LUCK!
