Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
360 ALIF Post Operative Conditions
I had a 2 level (L4-S1) 360 ALIF performed right at two years ago. The pain I had pre-op was eliminated with surgery. The problem is that 2 yrs afterwards, I'm having a bunch of new pain that my PM and I think is muscle related.
If I stand for longer than 45 minutes my back begins to tighten up. After that happens, I usually sit down and try to bend over to strech the muscle out and that helps some. If I drive for a while, it begins to hurt as well. Usually once I move positions, lay on a heating pad or take medication, I feel better. Not to mention, when the weather changes, things aren't good. But, there are times that the muscles get really pissed off and hurt for days on end. It seems like this is happening more and more.
Is there anyone else out there who had this procedure done who is going through the same thing? I've searched the Internet and can't find any good articles about post operative pain studies after this procedure is done. Isn't it strange that a person can find porn in .0001 milliseconds on the Internet, but you can't ever find what you are looking for?
