I have a slipped disc (L5) and a pinched nerve which causes severe sciatica pain. Have been dealing with it for the last 5 years. Have visited 3 doctors and out of the 3, 2 suggested a fusion and 1 recommended the referenced procedure which is less invasive given the scope of my job (lifting and being on my feet for 8 hours). Was wondering if anyone has had the referenced procedure done and what was the end result, how long ago, have any of the symptoms reoccurred. Any advise is appreciated. Have to make a decision asap.
