Hi my name is Glenn. I have had a few surgeries. I had a l5-s1 laminectomy discectomy when in the army in 03. I stayed in was redeployed to Iraq remessed up my back and was med discharged. I have been fighting with the back pain since. Had many different procedures from epidurals to facet injections to a temp spinal cord stimulator. During all these procedures I herniated C4-C6 and had a fusion Aug 2010. When going for a perm Stimulator I was told OH NO you need a PlIF. So scheduled for the PLIF last week on 9/12/11. He was unable to do the complete PLIF said it was because of my anatomy. So I had a decompression and fusion. I was told that I will possibly need a ALIF. Oh the joys!
