Hey all, I'm a new comer to the site. I have Spondylolisthesis, a Grade 2\ 50% Slip, chronic pain and depression. I'm 37 yrs old, and have been dealing with, fighting, coping, getting my *ss kicked by this condition for over 22yrs now, which showed up in my life a few weeks prior to turning 15.
The main reason I've come to the website is I'm searching out what the world of spinal fusions has to offer, specifically in the L5-S1 area. The rule of thumb by dr's I've become accustomed to is if you don't need it, don't do it. So if you can get out of bed and goto the bathroom on your own, then you're doing ok. But if surgery offers a viable option, then I'd be game, I just don't know enough about it.
Anyway, looking forward to meeting up with everyone and sharing experiences.
