Hi everyone. I'm 42 and have finally been diagnosed with the following.. grade 1 spondylolithesis with L4 pars defect. I also have sacrolisation of L5 as well as a disc bulge with right paracentral protusion indenting.. Sounds grim, I know!
I've been told that the best course of action is both spinal fusion and decompression, which quite frankly, scares the life out of me. I'm fine with the operation part of it all, but it's the recovery that is getting to me just a little.
Has anyone else had a similar experience, or does anyone have any words of wisdom that may calm my increasing nerves.
