When I went to Spain in 2014, I told my bank (chase) that I was going for surgery, not vacation, they wired the money for free. Thanks obumacare. I also asked Yolanda about a driver. They have a service that uses Mercedes and are very helpful. This is a must, as it receives the stress of getting to the apps., traffic, etc. The added fee is definitely worth it, not matter where you go. You will have enough to worry about.

Default Three-Level ProDisc-L

OK, made it to Bogen. Three-level ADR surgery yesterday. So far, so good. Level 8 distraction pain. A bit of sciatica when I straighten my legs. Drank a whole pot of tea.

Happened pretty quickly because the Prof. Dr. had a cancellation and we flew standby with no problems.
2002 - leg symptoms after ice skating lessons
2005 - DDD diagnosis - mainly at L3 - S1 (L1/2 not good either)
X-rays, 2 MRIs, EMG, mylegram/CT scan, discogram/CT scan, 2nd discogram
3 ESIs, nerve root injection, PT, chiropractic, SED at L5/S1 - qualified success
February 9, 1016 - stood up from chair - left leg and pelvis numbness and tingling, moderate lumbar pain
X-rays, MRI, CT scan, discogram/CT scan, mylegram/CT scan
April 26, 2016 - L3 - S1 3-level ProDisc-L
