I want to thank everyone for their post on this board. I like a lot of you were scared to death having surgery. After dealing with back pain for years, I finally had to do something after shattering the disc. I am 3 month out of surgery and had my 3 month doctor appointment last week and was told that I am healing fine and do not need to go back for any further appointments. I feel fine and this is actually the best thing I have ever done. Again, for those of you out there reading all these post, it is ok to be scared, but it will be ok.
