The final step to try and remove/reduce my chronic back and leg pain is surgery. In my case it's multi-level (L4-S1) fusion(s) - transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) and posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF). Since I am in Colorado and my family is mostly in Michigan, I'm using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place. I appreciate your prayers, your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
