All I recall was that the guy had a fusion and was at that time Ok. A poster on this site referenced the thread on a German forum. I've tried to find it again since and haven't.

baozi,

It has got to be terribly confusing when you get different signals from different doctors. Each prefers a different method to the same end; fusion at L5/S1. In that sense, they are giving...
