I am interested in knowing how people feel a year down the line from having an L5 S1 or one level fusion. Are things better now? are you glad you had surgery? Do you regret having it?
I know that it can take up to two years for a complete fusion and I know how difficult the recovery is from these ops having read things on this forum. however, often these issues have been written by people who are less than 1 year post op (from what I have read anyway). I wanted to know how it is longer term before I go for my one level anterior fusion for DDD at L5 S1.
