I was in a car accident (rear ended by a flatbed truck when I was stopped for merging traffic. I was in a subcompact car.) when I was 38). Low back surgery was one of the eight operations that allowed me to walk again. I have had no more problems with my low back in the thirty plus yesrs since the surgery.
