:H Hello everyone. I am "Bobbers" from the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Evan thought pain has been my constant companion for many years, the worst part of spinal disorders (for me) is the loss of quality of life. Having to plan your life around limited mobility and pain medication.
I have been diagnosed with spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis of L4-5. After physical therapy, injections and chronic pain management, I was referred to a neurologist. He recommended a L4-5 laminectomy, interbody fusion, pedicle screws and "Infuse Graft". That is why I am here. I need to educate myself in order to make an informed decision as to whether to go through with the procedure or not.
:SS I have to say after reading some of the horror stories I am a little worried. But as I just started reading the forums, I will try to keep an open mind. I would like to come across a forum for recommended specialist in my area (Seattle). If someone can lead me there that would be great. Thank you in advance for your welcome.
