Haven't been here in awhile

Hi all, just wanted to share. I'm healed from two herniations (L2/L3; L4 &5) a bulging disc, and spondylolisthesis. Am down to two Advil a day, which I I take at night. I now have to watch my back all the time and know when to stop doing things!


  • Congratulations! What were the most important steps for you? Are you practicing PT, stretches, exercises etc to keep yourself moving & keep you core strong to hopefully avoid further problems? It's truly great to hear some good news! ;-)

  • All of the above. Still no problems except for minor back pain now and then. I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones.
  • Nice to hear the positive stories! I come back now and again because I like to see myself as one of those positive stories too. It took me a long time to get to where I am but good to share because when I was going through things, it seemed endless. Seeing this story and now my own, lets folks know - there is hope!
  • Hi!  great news!  When did you have surgery?  I'm nearly three years out myself
