Today my dr. Started talking to me about spinal fusion. He doesn't know if it will help me and he really doesn't want to do it ob me because I'm only 23. But it seems more and more likely that that is where we will end up. He pretty much told me if I were 50 he would do it in a heartbeat. So what I'm really posting about is wanting to know who has had it, what pain did it help, recovery time, and how you are doing now?
It was a pretty big shock today that we went from talking about one surgery to talking about fusion. It would be levels l4 l5 and l5 s1. But anything you can share about fusion would help me a lot
