This is the surgery I had last Saturday. Hope to get back to normal soon enough and enjoy life as I used to do it some time ago.
LUMBAR POSTERIOR INSTRUMENTED FUSION

Spinal fusion is a technique used to stabilize the spinal bones or vertebrae. The goal of lumbar fusion is to create a solid bridge of bone between two or more vertebrae. Spinal fusion may be recommended when the natural disc space has decreased or the spine is unstable.
