The dr. that did my first surgery did xray after xray and then they did what is called a procedure where they put dye in your spinal cord and then tilt the table and let it run they found out that I have a disc that never formed and the next day they did the spinal fussion by taking bone off my hip and putting it in my back. The procedure sounds like this (Mile a gram) not sure how to spell it. Anyway what I was wondering has anyone been told this? Where they did the fussion the top vertibra is pulling back and the disc above that is degenerating and has herniated one time already. Am I alone on this one or has others had this problem. I am sorry to take up so much room on the board but I am really not wanting a cage put in my back.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
