36 Hours To L4-S1 FooShun!

Hi all,

First medical related forum I have ever joined, and I am happy to be here.

Friday AM in Charlotte, NC, we will have our version of a same-sex union with the joining in surgical matrimony of L4, L5, and S1. Everyone is excited! While my days of long runs are probably over, I am looking forward to no more pain rocketing down both legs.

I'll keep you nice people posted!

  • Hi Paul,

    Welcome to spine-health. We will throw a reception in your honor. It will be held at recoveries are us, complete with centerpiece rods and screws. Of course all attending will bring their own mixers and setups. Introductions will be done by a good surgeon. Beds are available for anyone whom might dance to long and need a break, of course we do allow chair dancing for those whom prefer to have fun from the seated position.

    Welcome and good luck on surgery. Be sure to update us on your honeymoon, as we are a curious bunch. If you would like to spread the word fast chat is always open.
  • LOL you guys are too funny... Enjoying the humor.

    Welcome to Spine Health Paul & Good Luck :)
