Neurosurgeon suggested a fusion; Ortho. suggested a Lumbar Laminectomy L4-S1. Currently managing pain via Mobic and walking albeit sometimes pain is severe. My question regards possible long term nerve damage if I continue to attempt to manage pain/problem via Mobic and additional Steriod injections. My Neuro. said won't damage; Ortho. was more evasive; friends Neuro. told her just opposite. What have you been told?
