what i had and what i did

this is the x-ray picture of the problem i had (representative):

and this is the current state of my spine (representative):

the explanation is available here (pics are from here) and here.
my slippage level was just over grade 2 (as per the diagnosis in july 07) and into early grade 3 (just before the surgery).
along with the implants, there is a thick bone dust formation which has been created between the same 2 vertebrae (L5 and S1) which will eventually solidify into a bone providing a unshakable solidity to the region.

thankfully i am reclined in a place most of the time which is not close to the telly and hence am spared the tired (tyred) damsels flaunting their non-existent dancing skills.
celebomania is aviodable.
