Made it to the other side. Surgery could not of went better. My surgeon did the surgery endo-scopic and I have to say this was one of the easiest surgeries I have ever had. He decompressed the sciatic nerve and placed rods at l5-s1 along with fusion. I was in the hospital one day with the only problem being my blood pressure dropping too low which was caused from being dehydrated. I am home and resting comfortably. I can say all my sciatic pain is GONE. Things could not of went better and my surgeon even commented he wished all my patients were as easy as I was. Thanks for all the wll wishes and now it is just healing time from here on out.
