I am wondering why I never get any replies to my posts. Someone said I should ask a question so I did ...no replies. That was before my surgery. I am recovering from a rather unique surgery..at least it might appear so..I had a 4 level PLIF on June 5. I reported in both the surgery and recovering from surgery forums. No interest whatsoever. I am curious as to what value others get from the forums.

Of course there is tons of useful info here. I have found many things that were extremely helpful to know both before and after.

    None of us have any reference to go by. A lot of times a post such as yours just sounds so complicated that, in my mind, there is nothing that I could possibly add that would be any help to you. Usually unless I think I can help I don't answer on posts.

    I know, I wouldn't want to have to go through a 4 level PLIF! Sounds like hell to me, but it looks like you are doing really well. I wish you all the best and hope you continue to heal swiftly.

    on how and when a post a member makes is going to get a response.

    However, there are some important things you can do to make your yourself and threads more visible to the site.

    Provide details about yourself
    - Medical History
    - Diagnostic Tests
    - Current condition
    - Surgical history
    - Medications you are taking
    - What treatments have you had.
    - Posting styles (spaces between paragraphs, keep it short and to the point)

    This way people can visualize a person associate with a member's name instead of just a name.
