Hi Stingray and welcome aboard. I had a fusion at the L5-S1 about a year ago and it was also "considered" a success. Obviously I'm still in pain, or I wouldn't be here, so I consider it only a "partial" success. I also see so many people that are worse off that I am blessed by how well I actually am.
Sorry, but I can't see Canada from here since I'm in the deep South, but I do see some of your geese flying by quite a bit.
All the best to you!
