Default L4-5 Prodisc Surgery Set

So after a ton of mere browsing through the site I have decided to finally post and to say that I will be having ADR surgery. I was set on going to Germany to have the M6 after each doctor I spoke with said they did not do artificial discs because the "data" doesn't support its' use and that a fusion is the gold standard, however I was lucky I found a neurosurgeon in IL who works with the Prodisc L. The date is set for August 25, 2011. I am nervous and anxious but relieved that this is finally going to happen for me after some run ins with my insurance possibly not covering the procedure despite their clinical policy bulletin stating that the procedure is a covered item. Well I will keep all posted and according to my surgeon I should be discharged in as little as 48 hrs but it all depends on my progress.
