I have had three back surgeries. Condition caused from playing college football. I am fused from L1 to S1, two clamps with six screws, rods all the way from L1 to S1, and the last surgery had a wedge inserted in my spine to keep me from "walking in the wind". Also had to have rods inserted on the inside of my spine. This surgery entrance had to be made from the front. I have very much nerve damage, calf muscle damaged and causes problem walking. Both feet tingle and go to sleep easily. I cannot hyper-
extend my back. This causes much pain. If it were not for barbed wire, bailing twine and duct tape, I would be in a lot of trouble (kidding). Anyway, walking is a problem for me due to the above.
