Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Has anyone had to deal with incontinence after ALIF?
I don't know if it's from the surgery or what but I have started having bouts of stress incontinence. I had this problem many many years ago but I had the bladder repair surgery done.
I seemed to be doing really well up until about 7-10 days ago. Then the pain came back like pre ALIF and the low back muscle spasms too. You know the kind, like when your back goes out and you can't move for a while, muscle spasms? I don't know what to think now :T
ALIF April 2011 but it turns out I broke before it barely fused.
