Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I am posting updates here after my surgery on February 28th. On April 30th of last year I was in a bad car accident. I have a ruptured L5/S1 disc. I have worked with my doctors having several MRIs, xrays, and a bone scan. We tried to do physical therapy, an injection and a nerve medicine which I ended up being allergic to. The doctors and I decided the only way to fix this issue is surgery.
