Default ADR one level L4/L5 success stories?

Hi all,
I was wondering if there are folks who might speak to their experience of having a 1 level L4/L5 ADR with the Prodisc-L. I know that this is a tad specific, and I'm also aware that each person's circumstances are different, but I'm looking to gather as many people's experiences as possible (for better or worse) prior to my consult.

Thanks in advance,
-Chad

Chad,

It may be smart to take 5-10 minutes and look through the post-op forum, where over 400 ADR patients have shared their outcomes:

ADR Surgical Outcome Forum
http://www.adrsupport.org/forums/f47/

When you find the patients that are of interest to you, send them a polite, succinct private message. Many patients are helpful and will get back to you within several days...

Hi Brian,
I'm both glad and reassured that that the surgery was successful and you're feeling significantly improved. Sometimes, I read the posts from those folks who have struggled and question whether this is the right procedure for me. I have my consultation on Tuesday with Dr. Balderston (in Philly) and have collected tons of information including CT, MRI, and previous services performed (ESI, PT, Chriro).
The one thing I wonder is how quickly I will be able to get back to work. Did the doc give you a general estimate--I've read 6-8 weeks. . .

-Chad

P.S. Congratulations on a successful procedure!
