Hey I am new to this forum and am here looking for advice as I am sure everyone else is also.
Long story short I'm a 29yr old male had a very active lifestyle until I suffered a herniated L5S1 3 years ago. Non invasive treatments were unsuccessful and I underwent a lumbar Discectomy. The operation totally relieved my leg pain but I have suffered terrible lumbar instability which is increasing ever since. I also have a pars defect and spondyloythesis at L5. I have tried a comprehensive pilates program, osteopathy, swimming etc still with increasing instability and episodes of SIJ slippages. I am about to under go 6 weeks of prolothreapy I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with this treatment and if unsuccessful I am staring down the barrel of a fusion which I have mixed thoughts about. Has anyone had a fusion for similar presentations and if so was it successful? Thanks for your time cheers!
