I just wanted to say "HI" and re-introduce myself. I had signed up a few months ago and then had surgery and wasn't on my computer much, but I'm back and might not be on every day, but this site is awesome!
I'm Erika....I live in Michigan and just had my 3rd back surgery in June. I'm doing fairly well...almost at the 3 month point and am hoping to get back to work soon. I had to stop working in May 2007 after going back in November 2006 after my ALIF at L5-S1 in July 2006. But, nothing seems to go really smoothly for me after surgery!!! However, I'm a tough cookie and keep persisting! I'm still dealing with nerve pain from my butt to my feet which they say may take 18-24 months to resolve because this last surgery was to take out my L5-S1 facet joints, put in cadaver bone, and also drill out bone spurs that were growing onto my S1 nerves bilaterally.
Anyways....enough about that! I'm just glad to meet you all!
Peace and Pain-Free Days,
