I've had fusion at L4-5 and repairs to that disk and the two above it. Now the disk between L2-3 is nearly gone and the vertebrae are starting to rub together. I have the typical pain shooting down my leg, numbness from mid-thigh to calf and my mid-section feels like it's in a vice. I am going through some PT and am meeting with my doc again in two weeks. I have to decide between having more fusion or letting the bones fuse themselves naturally. I have a great doctor and my first fusion was a great success.
Has anyone had to make this decision? What did you decide and what were the results?
