Susan, I think you will be ok, your lotis may go to litis and it still in the back region.. I have cervical spondylitis. This team has been very helpful. Take care.
Thank you Katy. I have Spondylosis, which brings me to my next question; am I on the correct website. Is this website just for those who have Spondylitis?
@A MySpondylitisTeam Member, I would think that you are ok with us. I don't think that to many others have looked at that link yet. But they all start with the same illness. sad. Hugs
WOW! That is encouraging. The surgery I am having is the Anterior Lumbar Fusion, ALIF. The video can be found on www.spine-health.com/video/alif.
hi @A MySpondylitisTeam Member Wow I just found some pages for you with a lot of different spellings. Spondylosis refers to a degenerative process affecting the vertebral disc and facet joints that gradually develops with age.
This is about Spondylitis, it's a lot of vidios. https://www.spine-health.com/conditions/spondyl... I hope this helps you some. Hugs
