  • Thanks Paul! I'll ask away then.

    Okay, so I've had back pain for years now and I am so tired of it. So done. Gotta get surgery, but don't want a fusion. My job requires I don't take time off and need to be physically fit. Is there any alternative for someone like me who wants to avoid fusion?
  • Welcome to Spine Health. All of us here are or have been dealing with spinal issues. When I first joined this forum, I found it helpful to read the Stickies and as many of the previous posts as I could, as many had already discussed some of my concerns in great detail. If you have specific questions, first you can do a search of older posts by using a few key words. If you don't find any answers to your questions, by all means, start a new thread. When you post, do it under the heading that seems most appropriate, for example we have one for Alternate treatments, if that is what you are interested in.

    Good luck, and remember we are here for each other.
