I just stumbled on this website. It is incredibly helpful.
I am asking you folks out there if you have had a lumbar spine fusion whether or not you would do it again? I have a grade 2-3 spondylolisthesis at L-5, S-1. I knew about all of this 15 years ago but put off surgery. Now I cannot leave my house, take care of my family, clean my house, etc because of the nerve root compression and pain in my leg. I would like to know if others who have had a fustion are glad they did and realistically how long will it take to get back to a level of function above this one? I am really out of shape but I am unable to lose weight or exercise because of the constant pain.
Thanks in advance,
