I had my 11 day checkup today and all looks good. I took a picture of my X-ray with my camera phone. At L5S1 is my 10 year old Artificial Disk. The 3 above are rods and screws. Hope I don't rust!
Artificial disc at L5S1 for 10 years. Had 3 Level lumbar fusion and Laminectomy on Sept 27, 2013. It was an OLIF (Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion) with cages, BMP, rods & screws. Norco, Plaquenil
