Default 3 week post-op L3-S1 Dr Bertagnoli. New forum??

Hey all! Before I post details, I want to find out if this is indeed the right place to put this. All of the other post-op recovery outcome posts are from 2010 and earlier. It's now 2023 so I am wondering if there's a new forum or something
At 3 pm on the afternoon of Thursday Oct 11, 2018, while sitting at my desk, my L5/S1 spontaneously collapsed and the two discs above herniated. I have not been able to sit or drive since.
5'6', 135lbs. Diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder, explains the cause.
Allergic to opiates. RFA, PRP and intradiscal stem cell no help. Epidurals every 8-12 weeks, 15 and counting.
Was 'getting my affairs in order' when I learned about overseas multilevel lumbar ADR. Hope restored!

This is the right forum but I'm seeing recent, within the last couple of years, threads as well as older ones. You might want PM Harrison AKA Rich if you're not seeing everything
