New to posting and interduction
Hi I wanted to introduce myself and say thanks for this site. I am a 36 yr old male that had an incident in April that has lead me to being a spiney. My storie is that I do heating and air work which is not very back friendly but until April no real problems. I was putting in a new air unit when on of the tools I was using came flying apart and cause me to fall back over some steps that were behind me. That night was the start of my pain. I went threw all the steps as for as shot pt meds ect. Finaly on 12-9-10 they did a interior post terior fusion with all the extras on L4 and L5. I feel compared to some of the stories on here that I am doing pretty good so far. Like I said at the start thanks very much for this site it has been very helpful threw my journey and now that I have a while to recover I am going to try to post some.
P S sorry not a very good writer
