My partner is scheduled for a 360 degree spinal fusion, due to a botched micro-discectomy 2 years ago for a disc bulge on L5/S1... He used to be so fit and strong; the surgery was in order to minimise the time he spent in pain (normally 2-3 days per month) prior to him joining the fire service. He's now reliant on crutches and can't even put his socks on. I'm his carer now. He's only 26... He's reluctant for further surgery. Anyone out there had such a procedure at such a young age? We don't know what to do.
