It’s been a long time since I have been on this forum...matter a fact I had to create a new log in. Anyway the new bright site looks good.

My 10 month update.....I am hiking, exercising and really enjoying life. I have to stretch more than I use to and sometimes my muscles get sore in my back however no more pain anywhere. I am completely fused and hardware is in tact. My big goal is to snow ski this winter.

If any of you live in the Richmond Virginia area and need a good back doctor just email me. All my office visits sitting in the waiting room I only hear success stories from this man.

I hope much success to all who had and will have surgery.

  • Stef -

    It is great to hear that you are doing so well. Thanks for all of the insight you gave me months ago in looking for help for my husband.

    Keep up the stretching and enjoy the snow skiing!!

  • Thanks so much for dropping in and sharing your success story with us. I love hearing the good stuff, especially as I'm due to have a fusion myself next month sometime and I'm scared to death about it!

    I hope to be able to ski again one day too, so you are an inspiration to me. Take care and keep in touch! Hugs, Spicey :)
  • That's great Stef...glad you are doing so well!!!!

    I'm having surgery myself soon. May I ask you if you had surgery from the front or back?

    Thanks and good luck skiing!!
