I am a 47 yo male. Surgeons in the Seattle area have said my surgery will include a multi-level fusion from T9-S1 Fusion. Key objective findings are Degenerative Scoliosis, Lumbar Sponylosis, Lumber spondylothesis. I have a spondylothesis grade 3 at L5-S1. It is said that the spondy by itself cannot be fused due to the lumbar scoliosis. I am trying to find a surgeon who can fix just the spondy.


  • I have had 9 back surgerys, and my back is now fused from T9 to S1. I am now haveing back spasm all the time. I have used valium up to 20mg at a time, I am now using Baclofen 10MG. Is there anyone eles out there that is haveing the same problem?
