Anyone experience this problem? Recovery time ? Is my dual sport riding coming to an end?

Thanks in advance for any input.
If you smoke- quit! Tobacco inhibits bone growth.

As for the fx- did he say where it is located on the vertebrae? Is it on one of the processes or the body itself? What is the condition of the L4-5 disk and the L5-S1 disk?
