Update: i had a 2 level l4/l5 l5/s1, on 3/19/10. TLIF
Most recent CTscan 1/11, shows l4/l5 completely fused.
L5/s1, no signs of fusing.
I get another CTscan in 6/11, and see my NS on 7/6/11, and was told if no improvement, i will need a ALIF with a plate put in there. I assume to stabilize my spine.
O.k. my question is, and i looked around this site and could'nt find an answer.
Is that a necessary surgery?
Meaning are there any future compliciations if i dont get that surgery, or if w/c will not approve the surgery.
Can my spine just stay in that condition, or will i eventually be worse off, then i am now.
I'm well aware these are just opinions, and there are no Dr's here.
Thank's in advance.
