there are plenty of people who have had l5 s1 fusion who have been fine for decades. ASD is a problem, but we make it seem like it affects 50-75% of cases, when in actually symptomatic ASD is a lot...

Sometimes fusion is a great option. The techniques have come a longggg way from what I understand. Tiger Woods had his spine fused and is playing elite golf.

Just throwing this out there, but if you are going to get a fusion l5/s1 is the level you want to get it on.

I agree with Blizzaga. In the US, you should be deciding between the Activ L and possibly the Freedom (should be approved soon). I know that Texas Back is using the Activ L now. I also think that...

With the amount of torque he puts on this back with his swing, I'm going to guess he probably had some facet issues.

I find it incredibly interesting that Tiger Woods went to TBI for his l5-s1 issues and went with a fusion over ADR. TBI is definitely a pioneer when it comes to ADR in the US, and Tiger Woods is...

Your MRI looks kind of similar to mine. My tear is smaller, but you can never tell how big it is with MRI. Your DDD doesn't seem too bad aside from the tear though. Your height looks OK and the...

I'm wondering if they'll ever do a study showing the effects these newer discs have on the facet joints. I know that the Activ L did one that was pretty cool:

I haven't heard of anything too damning about Clavel aside from the above surgery. I will say that this case is a huge surgery. Two M6's above and below a fusion? wow.

Some definitely heal. It really depends on how degenerated the disc is. A tear in a hydrated disc will, but in a black disc the chances are slim. Problem is, they never heal to the previous...

Annular tears can take a long time. Check the Chirogeek website, he states that sometimes 2-4 years. If you can live with it, it's worth it to wait. Regennex has also reported good results with...

The height of l5 s1 is decreased a bit too imo, but it's still well hydrated, which is good.

That is great. Your l4/l5 sounds like my l5/s1. With any luck, we'll have stem cells to maintain disc health in the next ten years.

interesting, so how does your l4 l5 look? just curious, because I've heard that the movement at l5 s1 is such that if you were to get a fusion, it would be the best level.

Interesting, so your fusion at L5 S1 led to degeneration of l2 l3? Are you sure they were related? I only ask because usually fusion really affects the levels above and below.

I'm kind of shocked they would charge you for this extra operation after the disc subsided. Didn't it subside due to their miscalculation?

Back on light duty after a month? Sheesh, that seems a bit farfetched given what I've seen and heard about this operation. Make sure you take it easy.
