I posted a few months ago that I suffered from low back pain and sciatic nerve pain, pinched in three areas since my car accident in 1971. I could hardly walk without holding on to the walls and crying. I made the decision to have back surgery, here in Las Vegas, . I read all I could on this site and others and was afraid of the surgery/outcome BUT had faith in the DR. I had my surgery on September 28, 2011. I sit here, pain-free. No back pain no sciatic pain in my buttocks, down my leg, behind my knee and down to my foot. I am truly blessed and at 66 years old have a positive outlook on life and look forward to living the remainder of my life without back pain.
Thank you, for all your encouraging words when I inquired about the surgery/preparation/outcome. God Bless everyone of you and Merry Christmas.
