newbie here for 2 months, POST_op 4 months, Isthmic spondylolisthesis at L4/L5, PLIF ON 7/16/2008.

Still feel sciatica now, found two books in library
today, feel it would be good for us, both OP AND PRE surgery

1,Beat Back Pain (52 Brilliant Ideas)
By Chambers, MD (Author)


covering almost every therapy dealing with our back pain

2,Spinal Arthroplasty: A New Era in Spine Care
Edited by Richard D. Guyer, M.D., Jack E. Zigler, M.D. 

textbook for surgical treatment on spine, some good points on POST_OP's patients with psychological problems, about depression and angery...


  • :) i see you are new and i want to welcome you to the forum. :H we are here to offer you support! i use books on positive thinking and meditation as well as books on such things as diversion therapy. <:P taking care of my mental state can be a big part of how i handle my pain. heck, of the pain itself. :? such things as deep breathing which comes from meditation can help with flare ups. even the Bible for the many ideas about pain hidden in its pages help me think better about my pain. =D> so although i don't have anything really specific for back pain i use many other books as tools to control my pain.
