  • Did the Dr. say what it was or how it is designed to function? What part of the world are you writing from?
  • I'm from s.Carolina. Charleston area. The clamp is still hardware just smaller than brackets and rods. Attaches w/o the pinacle screws. Done through the back. Smaller incision. And fewer muscles compromised. Less time under anesthesia. I just wondered if anyone else had it done.

  • :))) hey nel had physio today 24.5.12 and i am doing really well, am able to go swimming and treadmill but very lightly :D also able to drive now which is a big relief especially for my 8 year old, she has missed me taking her to school, but can only do that. I am feeling on the up now, have been walking nearly 2 miles a day also.

    Have you had your facet joint injections yet, i had two of them previous to surgery but neither worked for me, but everyone is different, i hope all goes well for you, keep in touch and let me know how it goes.

    Good luck
