I came upon this site looking for info on spinal fusion. I am looking at an L/4 L/5 fusion. Not sure what kind yet, I didn't know there were different proceedures, and didn't ask enough questions yet. I haven't decided if I want to do the surgery yet, it seems like all I hear is horror stories!
I was injured 9/2007, broke all right transverse processes of the lumbar spine and messed up my neck. Last March had a laminectomy, foramenectomy, and discectomy on c/3,c/4. Had terrible pain and headaches. Am much better with surgery thank goodness, but still have daily, constant back pain.
I guess I just would like to know from others if they've had similar surgery and the outcomes. Thank you!
