Default Stenum Success story

It's taken me 3 years to say this, but I think I'm a success. I'm not pain free but the pain feels like arthritis in my facet joints, not in the disk itself. (I have arthritis in my hands and feet too.) No more periformis, distraction or sciatica. (Knock on wood). Today I walked 3 miles and am planning a ski trip this winter (no black diamonds!). Still uncomfortable when sitting or standing for long periods, but it's now it's discomfort, not pain. Congratulations Mark on I-Spine. You're the first person I read about having this surgery and your success and encouragement helped me on my journey.
