I just found this site and I am very thankful. I have tons of questions. I am considering a fusion L4,L5 S1 due to pars Fractures and Spondy. I am 42, active and in pain since Nov. I am having my 5th injection on Friday and they really help, but only for 6 weeks. I can even start to work out the injections. When they injection wears off, I am back in pain and can't do much. I have great life, supportive husband, and a two year old.
Everyones stories sound the same, Chiro, Ortho, Pt, Aqua therapy, meds, rest, message....on and on. It sounds like my story! I am just not seeing any positive fusion stories. Please is there anyone outthere that had the fusion and was able to get out of pain, exercise and get there life back and was able to stop thinking about their back everyday!
Best Regards and thanks in advance!
