I decided I better switch from chronic pain to back surgery seeing how I decided to go with it.
I'll have discogram and C.T. scan on 9/11. And depending on what he finds it will be a 1 or 2 level fusion. And that is when I'll have the appointment to get all of the information on the relatively new surgery.
I do know the only way I can be a candidate is to have a eXtreme lateral interbody fusion. That's XLIF, for the alphabet soup of fusion surgeries. They go in from the side arthroscopically. I'll let you know more when I know more.
Good luck, Jim :S
