I'm a 60 year old male, former athlete ( in my own mind), been thru 4 lumbar laminectomies/disectomies over last 20 years. I now have very severe lower back pain, fortunately very little sciatica. I'v got Failed Sirgical Back Syndrone and DDD. I went to Mayo and they wany to do a 4 level ( L 2-3 thru L5-S1 fusion.
I'mm looking for those of you who've had 3 or 4 level fusions to se hoe they've help or hurt.
