My name is Bill, age 57. I had a hemilaminectomy and fusion (L4-S1) in 2001. I have since redeveloped severe stenosis now at L2-L3, needless to say painful. I am scheduled (4/28) to have another fusion for L2-L4 which needs to be connected to the earlier fusion. They will have to remove the old rods and screws and install new hardware to make a L2-S1 fusion. Doctor is also installing a Globus Transition device at L1-L2 to remove the "load" off the disc and hopefully prevent further migration of stenosis. For what it is worth, I am (and want to continue to be) very active physically - hiking, canoeing, backpacking, sports, etc. Any advice?
