I have spondylolisthesis with DDD along with spinal stenosis. Both my neurosurgeon and pm are pushing for me to get spinal fusion done. I currently take 90mg avinza along with oxycodone for breakthrough and zanaflex. My question is, how long can I safely wait before I should get it done? I would like to wait a year or so to get things in order because I know the recovery time can be lengthy. Also, I have family/friends who either know someone or have had the same condition who tell me that I can wait as long as I want as long as I am careful. What do you guys/gals think?
