I have horrible back pain, dealing with it for many years, and just felt nothing can fix it. All the older stories about surgery were bad. Nice to hear someone with a good outcome. It gives me hope. I hope the poster going in now has a great outcome. Best wishes.

I was reluctant on the first one, but eager for the 2nd since it cleared up the pain
so quickly

Good luck to you

You will go into surgery with a backache and come out with a worse one, but with luck and skill on the surgeon's part, that worse one will get better very soon.

My doc took one look at me and called in an opiate prescription.

Backs are stinkers.

At least that I remember. It was delayed about 4 hrs because he had an emergency patient. I talked to him a little prior to the surgery. He had me do a couple moves and said he thought I was a lot better than the MRI had made it look. Not in much pain so I’m hoping for good results.

Not in much pain, have to take it easy for awhile. This was #5. I’ve had some good stretches but then something will wrong like a car wreck or an infection. I should be good for awhile and looking forward to rebuilding my strength.
