I had a hybrid 3 level surgery at the end of April - 2xADR's plus an ALIF fusion. I have two congenital conditions, spina bifida occult and this transitionl vertebra (which means the transverse process at L5/S1 is joined to the illiac) These two conditions have apparently led to the need for the surgery I have had. The problem is that I'm still in pain and still on medication. I'm having another de-nervation next week but I'm being told that further surgery to split the fusion might be necessary. The thought of yet more surgery after what I've already had scares the life out of me even though it's described as "a small incision in the back and the bone is nibbled away"!!
Does anyone here have this condition - I believe it's known also as Betorelli Syndrome - and if so does it cause you problems and has anyone had surgery to correct it? I'd like to hear from others who have had it done before I consider more surgery.
