I’m good...I know about the glue...makes a much wimpier scar though. Just sayin...😬 I have a big ole zipper scar on my ankle from jumping out of planes so I guess I win!

I have a massive scar where they cut open and folded my shoulder and back away to rebuild my scapula. Plus 3 steel bands and 9 screws holding it together.

Someone told me it looked like a michigan sharkbite. Lol.

Sorry to hear about your watermelon brother. I know ya spend some time trying to make that work. I bet it's worth it though... You feel any better than before? Other than pain of course. Honestly have not known anyone to have that procedure.

if i knew for a fact that thecnics like this versuse the old days of screwing in to fuse bone together i migh just go whole hog and get back and neck fixed in a bout year or two
I think they have some foam rubber kinda stuff now that they inject and basically pad those neck and back areas. I’d like that in my neck discs...maybe...but not painful enough YET.

damn it! ok you win...I didn’t get any permanent hardware. 😡

Pics are in my old laptop now but i posted them here or riu. Had like 100 staples.

The leg zipper sounds like it was pretty bad too.


I can say it was a mountain bike crash. And it was. But on the street in front of my house while teaching my brother in laws kid to ride without training wheels.

Showed him real good!

They fused my moms neck last year. She said it was like nasa in the operating room.

Sadly less than a year later they go back in and start scraping away more arthritis.

None of the surgeries or treatments stop the bone spurs from growing. In fact they help speed up the problem with more trauma.
