    Darkthirty.... thanks for dredging up this conversation from a year ago -I've had limited success with a few stretching and massage techniques but I will look into your advice, as well as Bobinator's and the story link from Jim.

I believe it was 2-3 months until I went back on full duty at the fire department. I'm 52 now and can stand and put my palms flat on the floor, and throw a roundhouse kick over my head level. I am thrilled with it, considering what I saw happen to people who took the fusion instead. I'd advise you to condition your core as much as possible before the surgery, that way atrophy won't slow your recovery. Robert Shugart did the operation and was training other surgeons at the same time. Good luck with it, I know a pain in the back can be a real pain in the .....
