hi every one.

just wanted to say hey, love the site. it is great for researching all those issues we have. its great to find a place where people actually know and understand what you are talking about and mean it when they say they understand.

little history.
38yr old male
c3-4 was fused from birth, discovered in 07 during dr trip over some nerve pain down right arm. did PT, ting, heat, exercise . controlled with ibprophrin, naproxin.
fast forward to '14. lost feeling and control of right arm bicep, forarm muscles, thumb and index fingers.
had a ACDF c4-6 in Feb of 15.

always had manual labor or physically challenging jobs, so being soar from a day of work was not only common but expected to a point, so played off the lower back issues till same yr neck went south. in '14 . had L4-S1 fused in august of 15. main reason was stenosis if I remember correctly was the decideing factor. degenerative disease neck and back, and a bag full of a few other fun names

looking forward to participating on this board, and hopefully being able to help some one the way the information on here helped me.

C4-6 on 2-15, L4-S1 on 8-15. fusions with hardware.
