Hey everyone, I just thought Id pop in here and post my outcome from my 3 level fusion I had last December. I am still experiencing stiffness and some occasional sciatica and daily numbness in my lower leg and toes on my left foot but overall I feel these symptoms are much better than what I was feeling pre-op. Ive been able to back off on alot of the meds too. Im feeling healthier every day. I truly feel very lucky to have one of the great featured surgeons this site advertises. I am finally rehabilitating and getting ready to start working a regular job again and back on the right track to supporting my family again. Thanks again to spine-health, and the excellent resources this site makes available to those suffering from chronic back and neck pain. Thanks to everyone I have met here too! In advance, Happy holidays to all of you!
