I am 27 years old. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Lyme's disease. Well I was going through my recovery from having a pic line in my arm and being treated with antibotics. They discovered that I had a major back problem. I was told that I had severe spinal stenosis with degenerative disc disease. I had a S1 though L3 spinal fusion with a laminectomy in January of 2010. I am now going back to the surgeon to see about another surgery. I am afraid because I did not get any real relief from this one. I am also concerned because of me being so young that the more I have fused the more pressure it puts on the disc how many more surgeries could I have in the future. I would like to get some ideas or suggestions. Thank you.
