... trouble. I just went back through all the old threads and your pre surgery issues were very similar to what I had going on. I would like to reiterate that the L5 nerve root was quite impacted by the stenosis you had going on and with that damaged disc. ... (36 replies)

... Ginger, The best thing would be to invest in a work station where you can stand up instead of sit. I did this and it has made a tremendous difference in my low back strain. Plus it is just healthier to stand up. I get more exercise during the day too. I bought mine at staples. It is basically a high table with two leaves that you can fold in. Comes in black and cherry... (5 replies)

... >>>> Hi Jacqee and welcome to the forum. Having had several back surgeries, I can tell you that recovery takes TIME. Once you are healed well, I see no reason you can't ride your bike and work out, tho you may have to change your routine to accomodate your back. Once you have had spinal surgery, it is important to always keep in mind that your back will never quite be the... (3 replies)

... Hello! It's been a few mths since I've posted here. On 4.26.2007 I had a level 1 fusion, L5-S1. My original diagnosis was 3 herniated discs in the lumbar area of my back. My surgeon decided to take a conservative approach and only fix the disc causing the most trouble. I'm still in pain all of the time. I called my surgeon's nurse today to get pain med refills only to be... (7 replies)

... Hi. I can relate to all of the above. My doctor is under investigation for fraud and taking kickbacks. He cared more about lining his pockets than he did about his patients. I agree with you and taking it day by day is right. I can't do much of anything anymore. I have serious nerve damage from all the manipulation and I have trouble severely just trying to pick up my new... (15 replies)

... Mom, I wanted to share with you that I have 3 different fusions and am fused from L3, L4, L5, L6 (extra vertebrae), S1 and S2. In 1982, I had my first fusion s1/s2 without hardware and they used the bone from the hip. I was 17 and back to work fulltime at 4 weeks post op. I remember that hip hurting up to a year afterwards into the groin and right side. I was fused rock... (5 replies)
... S1 is the least of all evils.. There is not too much motion at that joint, and the success rates for the fusion are very high.. You also don't lose much mobility afterwards, which means less stress on surrounding discs than if it were at a major motion point. ... (33 replies)

... What a noble job you have and you obviously love what you do. The disectomy allowed you to get back to life. The other disc was still bulging l5/s1 and I take it, it was left alone. Now it's acting up? Everyone is different and it's hard to say if surgery will solve your problem and you'll be painfree as a normal person can be, is unknown. I could barely walk before I...
