    I値l be out of commission for awhile

    I致e got to have my second back surgery on 12 March. They are going to fuse L5-S1. I知 more than a little nervous about it, but the pain is getting too great and the VA is cutting back on prescribing pain medication due to greedy doctors overprescribing pain medication to those people who do not need it for pain. Good people are caught in the middle, like always, and can稚 get the pain medication that they need.

    I知 hoping everything goes alright and the doctor fixes me. I don稚 have a ton of faith in doctors, but what else can I do? So if you don稚 see me around here for a few days you know why. Keep the faith. Bob

    Hope your surgery goes well and help you out with lower pain. Take your time and follow the recommendations on the rehab plan. I know to much of this lower back problems. If they are going to be doing a surgery on me which they don`t want to risk at this moment. I have to do a fuse to L2-S1 with replace the discs. Have a birth defect with a too narrow spine canal and the discs is of low quality and have loosed most of it`s fluid in them. And that does so the discs is pushing on the spinal cord. Have done a fuse in the neck on 2 levels where they switched the 2 discs and fused it together. I had to much of nerve damage to begin with so I still get high pain levels. But they go back to lower pain levels way faster now which is great. The lower back I have done 2 surgerys in. They made room for the spinal cord so it`s not jammed or how you would explain it. But on one of those levels the disc has been worse and are jammed in the spinal cord. So soon i will go a round with the doctors and hope they send me to the country width specialist. And gets their opinion on if a fuse surgery can help only a little bit at least. As I`m in a very bad shape and been for a long time and it`s have only gotten worse. With the disc replacement I hope will help to not being worser and worser as it is now. And get the stabillity from the fuse surgery.

    Sorry for ranting on on me. Hope you all the best and it`s gets as good as possible afterwards Bob.

    Well wishes
    / Tony
