I'm Tessa. I just turned 29 two weeks ago. I had an ALIF, L5-S1, on April 2, 2009, and am going to be having PLIF, on June 18, 2009. I have/had spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis. Not sure if they were caused by a specific injury or if they are congenital/gradual onset conditions.
Just a little about me, I'm single, no kids but I do have 2 cats, Mickey and Lucy, and 2 yorkie-poo dogs, Comet and Starr. My work is not physically demanding but it is mentally demanding. I work in customer service for the BCBS plan in my state.
I'm going to pop in out here to check out things and may have some questions or comments also. I look forward to visiting with all of you!
