Fear not, it works either way. You think I'd have the link thing and stuff like cut and paste perfected by now. Must be an Iron deficiency. But it looked all right till I saw it sitting in the thread. Then it began to look funky to me. More than one way to skin an article, I guess.
But this is the kind of thing for pain we should all be pushing for. Fusion is almost always a losing bet and you end up worse than if they'd just left you alone with your drugs. Artificial replacement hasn't had many critics come through here and anyone who did would have had poor results. But this stuff... this is the future (too far for me, damn it) and something they have never, ever had for ailing backs, throughout all of history- a chance for a cure. I really loved the way they worked the auto mechanic in to it. To that guy it was probably such a simple fix, it was stupid. Your car busts a spring from hitting a curb - you put in a new spring. A leaky shock is making the ride unstable and painful - replace it - especially if it's original equipment with lots of miles on it. Nothing is ever going to be perfect, but if they're looking for Guinea patient # 21, they can drop me an email tomorrow .

I did not make that last comment about your links. It was about the study on back surgeries.

Another reason I hate dumping a story like this on you is the links are often trouble.
Just in case:
and if you still have problems getting to it tell me. We'll work on it till we get there.
Dont be afraid to shout, especially you lurkers. This is mostly for you--og

Sorry, I hate just putting up some article for people to watch, but this is a good one, even if it excludes most of us who have already had procedures done. This is support in the best way I know how to give it, though. There is something better on the horizon, don't get chumped in to doing something that may exclude yourself from a CURE, not an every 8 hour handful of band-aids (which you can take while they perfect this anyhow) or a procedure that they're going to lie about and tell you you'll be as good as new. Fusion is 19th century medicine. Replacement is too new, which is a load of bull, a sign of a lazy doctor who doesn't want to learn anything new or better, and is making plenty of money, patient be damned. This story is 21st century medicine and they're finally looking at what happens to your body 20 or 30 years down the road after this procedure. This is the missing link, this is what happens with your life after surgery. No one gives a damn today with the exception of a few hard to find compassionate pain doctors and even they have their limits (which they should not)
This may not be the magic bullet for back pain, but finally they're looking at what happens decades later when most people end up needing more fusions from the weakening caused by the first one. You will be angry about the time frame and foot dragging by the FDA. Anybody need their email address?
Or phone number?--og
