    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    All that I can say is immediate relief! I noticed that when I was first allowed to sit up in the recovery room that I was sitting straight! When I was allowed to stand for the first time, the pain was gone completely other than a little soreness from the procedure itself, which was nothing compared to the pain that I was living with. It was a very emotional moment for me, not being in the constant pain that I had become unfortunately accustomed to for so long. After a couple of weeks all of the soreness from the procedure had gone and the numbness and sharp pains from the sciatica are still gone as well. I can't thank the doctors and staff of North American Spine enough!
