My Story:
I had back problems on and off for many years when one morning in April 2007 I woke up with a familiar pain in my butt and after a few days the pain progressed to where I could not walk. An MRI revealed I had a massively herniated disk, a laminectomy and diskectomy L3-5 got me up and walking. Three months later I had ruptured 3 more disks and ended up having L3-S1 fused.

I struggled for the first year after the fusion with pain and mobility issues. It took almost a year before I really felt good again. I have since lost weight and have been exercising regularly. I can do just about anything I want and will usually go for it.
