Hey fella's...long time no talk, I hope all are doing well and life is treating you great!! Ok, I had major back surgery May 6th, it included a Fusion of the L4L5, 2 lamonectomys, bone graph, cage, and 4 screws. Surgery went great no complications and the dr said I had EXCELLENT bones...he was quite impressed w/my bone structure and density. I wasn't able to walk for 2weeks, I'm starting to get around pretty good, but still can't quite dance a jig...lol... I had 15 internal stitches and 11 staples...my staples were removed today and I was given my "girdle/brace"...i begged them to allow me to return to work next monday the 1st, but they will only allow me to be there 4hrs a day the 1st week but atleast I'm back at work. I wanted to say thanks to Coco and Ryry for checkin in on me and making me feel better...thank you guys...you know I love you both. I will upload pics of my xrays and scars here soon. but needless to say I won't be going thru any metal detectors w/out hassle for the rest of my life. I've missed you guys and will be online more. I hope all are doing well and hugs and kisses to all.
