Default surgeries

L5S1 discectomy 1989= glad
L4 percutaneous discectomy 1992= regretted big time for a long time re super failed outcome and lingering symptoms till about 2005

Other surgeries were recommended including 3 level global fusion, 2 level ADR, and hybrid surgery with ADR and fusion. I started to feel better around the time the last surgery was authorized and feared getting set back to anything like the level of pain I dealt with post L4 surgery.

I am glad to date I've had no more back surgery and am doing at least as well as I am spine wise. Daily pain med once/day and injection of Toradol occasionally for neck/back flare ups does wonders for me these days.
