Good Afternoon rmh54!
We want to welcome you to the Chronic Pain forum on this special Easter Sunday!
Well.... we share something in common, in that I also had my L4-L5, L5-S1 fused back in March of last year. It wasn't fun was it!
You and I also share the same age as well, and that can be a little rough on us older guys. I really do not know much on the SSDI experience you are speaking of, but many members here do.
The weekends can be a little slow here, and especially today with the Easter Holiday, so be patient and allow the members a little time to welcome you here. Monday they will come flocking back in, and I'm sure they will be happy to share their SSDI experience with you.
I'm not sure the injury itself, will keep you from getting SSDI, but I do think that there are many other things they consider when evaluating this sort of thing. Lets see what some of the other members have to say.
I think you will enjoy the members here, and we welcome you to make your home of support here with us.
