Do any of you know what will happen to my back if I do not have this fusion. L4-5 is deteriorated and L5-s1 is collapsed and I have had a cervical fusion and laminectomy at L4-5. I chose to do epidurals because I am so scared of this surgery. I am borderline osteoporis and turning 60 on Monday. Will I continue to have more problems with these two discs or what? Thank you all for any advice you can give me.
