I just joined your community a few minutes ago, and I wanted to introduce myself. As you see; my handle name tells you why I'm, and for what I see, there's tons just like, so this is heaven! :)

I've had 5 lumbar surgeries, with the 1st one been a 3 level/360 fusion, an ACDF C5-6, I had a spinal cord stimulator that was installed 4 years ago. I recently (Sept. of 2011), broke my ankle really badly, my tibia completely fractured and came through the skin (sorry for the visuals)so now I have more titanium and screws, since the tibia had to be repaired. In my life time I've had over 20 surgeries (not proud of it), including a thorocotomy to remove part of my left lung due to cancer.

Gosh, I sound like lots of fun, HUH? Again, thanks for having me, and if you read all of this, thank you!!
