Hello everyone my name is Kyle and I'm 28 years old. I'm a SSgt in the USAF and on December 30 I will have a fusion. I have a micro-d in 2006 and was told my disc completely degenerated. I'm in unbelievable pain 24/7 and really hope this works. Its only a single level fusion luckily due to the fact that I was born without an L5 vertebrae. News to me! Just wanted to reach out to others who have gone through this because I'm pretty nervous. Ill keep you posted!
