My name is Tim, i'm 29 years old and live in indiana. Six weeks ago I underwent a 2 level fusion L4-S1, with laminectomy, and discsectomy. Still having quite abit of pain! This all started from a powerlifting accident. I fractured a vertabrae and didnt realize it, kept training and working (i'm a heavy equipment operator)and eventually i began to lose feeling in my right leg and foot which led to my surgery. Thanks for listening
