Back is doing a good bit better but i still have no stamina to be up and about before it starts getting sore. I'm hoping this will pass but I've learned not to get my hopes up. Dr says it will take a while to get my body used to the hardware. But pain level is a good bit down from the hell i was living in for sure.
Thanks for asking!

I really feel for you guys. No fusion here but the disc at L5S1 exploded and left a pc. of disc pasted against the spinal cord. I had to wait 5 days for my surgeon to get back into the country. I spent those 5 days in a hospital bed pushing that pain killer button non stop. That was 1990 and I can remember that pain way too vividly even now.

I wish you both the best of luck in achieving a pain free recovery.

yep, getting old ain't for sissy's!!! i'm only 41 and i think the worst part of it is the fact i can't do the things i enjoyed before. this took alot from my life, but now i just have to fill that hole with other things.

gotta stay positive and just keep going, it'll get better, and if it don't, well the world ends in less than a month anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What sucks Doc is all this cold weather. I need to move down to your neck of the woods and get away from it. Makes all my bones ache. But I'm not old!!!! Just not as young as I used to be

I know. It sucks to think that after I hit the Powerball tomorrow night, I won't have time to properly build out my 500 acre flying site

A little bit funny now.

It does get better. But it does take time. I was 10 years younger than you HH5051 when I blew mine out. It was 2 years before I was able to return to work. I'm not going to lie to you. The nerve damage caused some problems and pain and over the years the scar tissue has started to cause more nerve pain but thankfully most of the time 2 ALEVE make me feel better. You really just need to hang in there and don't let it get to you down. Time will bring healing.
