Started by Joe r on 12/27/2012 3:26pm

Hi,
I am in my third week of lumbar surgery recovery. Had my l4 l5 and l5 s1 fused with disc replacements. surgery was performed from front and back. So far so good.Moving around alot better. I was rear-ended by semi truck in November of 2011. herniated 12 disc in my back. worse being my lower back.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Hey Joe, I had the same fusion but not the disk replacement I have heard of it. I had surgery 2 years ago and just found out I didn't fuse having another surgery on 28 of this month. Sorry to hear of 12 disc thats awful hope you continue to have good results, relacing disc is the way to go.
