Default Here here!

Jack,
Well said and to the point. I would rather try something more natural and less evasive one. You can always do fusion later. Fusion made my life a misery. It did not help my pain at all!!!!

Nathan,
Thank you for your story and for sharing your experience.
I wish you all the best. I had a consult with Dr.Rischke too. He dies surgery now at Clinic Bel Etage with Dr. Schmitz who is also an excellent surgeon, but post Op follow up has been zero. That is my only complaint.
I got a reply from my first ADR surgeon and he said said my placement and the execution looks good.
Still, I have an assessment coming up this Thursday with a surgeon on the east coast. I want to keep an eye on this. I would like to jave another CT this fall. That will be a year out and see how the Cp-Esp is holding g up ans also the level under it. That is where still have an M6.
