I've recently been referred to a surgeon to discuss the possibilty of the fusion of three of my lumbar vertebrae. Ive been struggling with pain caused by DDD and two herniated discs for 6 years now. I've tried every treatment going pretty much and have been drugged up to the eyeballs for as long as I can remember! Stopped doing all of my hobbies and am now unable to work.
Surgery seems like the last option for me as it's either that or opting out of the whole life thing in general!(not a decision I want to have to make!)
Not quite sure what I hope to get from this post but just felt like I had to get my feelings out somewhere.
