360 fussion 1986 S1L5L4

Up-lift to any that falls under category as per-physician recommendation of 360% fusion surgery. Mine was done in Dallas in 1986 S2/L5/L4 was told I would be disabled. I was thinking otherwise so post-op recovered got job in my old field welding/heavy equip.mech.and worked 22 years.I didn`t realize or stupidity should have been a given that the next upper level`s take over part of the movement loss on fusion below. Had to retire a bit early at 58 years old in 2009. I just allowed equip/lifting and other mechanical means to do it for me and used my mind first and straight back lifts.There is great life after surgery. BIG JOHN
