I am somewhat new at this so bare with me. 2007 I was told I had degenerated disc problems in the lower back. L3-4 also L4-5 sever loss of height. There is more but in all its 3 pages long. I have had denervation done 2 now the first one took for 2 years, then pain picked up and had denervation aging did not take. 2009 went back to therapy and new doctor because of change in medical coverage. Now I went through lumbar epidural injections 2 injections in the upper vertebras not sure numbers, 2 week later I will have to get the lower half. The upper half does not seem like there was any change.
I was wondering about surgery. I have been checking into spinal fusion here in Pheonix at the Sonoran Spine Center, I see minimally invasive surgery, not sure if I qualify. I was wondering what others had had done and how they have come out of their operation. Some say don’t have back surgery, some say depends of the doctor, what say all of you. I tried in chat but that went a little faster then I was wanting. One sentence does not help, I wanted more. I want to know what you did, therapy, how you felt after, and now, how old were you when you had it done, and do you regret the operation.
Thanks a head of time.
