Well for those of you who know me you already know my story. I had a fusion redo after 10 months on L5/S1. I am back at work now full time after two months off work. So far things feel pretty good for having to be here 8-11 hours a day. For those of you who have questioned the back brace in the past I personally would highly recommend that you keep it on until told otherwise. I can tell a hugh difference from I wear it and don't wear it. I go in on the 13th for my first set of x-rays so my fingers are crossed on that. I hope that everyone has a pain free or at least pain reduced day.



  • Hank so glad this time the surgery was a success for you. Don't over do and work to many hours a day. Your still early in recovering. Hope you continue to heal and feel better..

  • Hank,

    I am so glad to hear your wonderful news! My only concern is that it sounds like you are working a lot of hours. I am glad you have such strength, but please don't over do it and set yourself back.

    Take care!!

  • the over doing thing isn't going to happen. If i start to get sore or feel tired i just have to let my boss know and he has no problem with just letting me sit around and relax for a bit. All the people that i work for fully understand what i am going thru and most of the do not wanna see my military career end prematurley. thank you all for the concern.
