L3,L4, L5-S1 fusion

On August 1 I had L3-L4, L4-L5, and L5-S1 fused to stop pain in my legs from Sciatica and numbness in feet; and because of Spinal Stenosis,
laminectomy procedures on T12, L1-L2, and L2-L3. The 5-hour surgery alleviated the pain; corrected the numbness in my left foot; and small numbness in my toes on right foot. I am now able to walk with a cane after using a walker for a month. I hope to go back to my office job on September 8th. I can climb and go down stairs. I am 63 years of age and recommend this procedure heartily with the right surgeon. I also wear a brace except while sleeping.
