Hello all- My name is Brent,I am a 53y/o male from So. Indiana,have been looking over the forum for awhile and decided to join. I had open TLIF in Sept.,2006 and had to have revision surgery in April,2007 to replace loose pedicle screws in S1 region. I am now fused from T11 to S2 with 18 screws,rods, crosslinks,etc. Needless to say this has been a life changing experience and continue to have chronic pain and complications in my lower back/legs, with new developing in my thoracic and cervical spine. I hope to meet others that can relate, share experiences and advice on making the most out of life in our situations. Thanks in advance for allowing me to join and look forward to your input.
