I am on my way to getting a fusion as I have had 2 disectomies already and re-herniated the same L5 disc. I also have a bone spur on L4 and it is herniated.
I am terrified to schedule it. I am scared that I will never be the same. I am scared about the recovery time. I read posts here and I see people still in pain after a fusion and am sure that will be my issue as well.
Please someone tell me that they can be successful.
