Chronic Low Back Pain - 4 years

Hi - I have had chronic back pain for 4 years and have tried everything with no luck. I have a recent MRI image that I would like to attach, but can't figure out how?? Any help?

Anyways - I have spoke to a neurosurgeon and he recommends that I get an L4/L5 fusion.

I am only 30 years old so it is a bit scary but I want to give it a try as nothing has worked in the past.



  • I had chronic back pain for years from an accident. I tried it all. Nothing worked. I am now fused L1-S1 along with both SI joints. That is what finally fixed the pain.
    L4/L5 laminectomy, L4/L5 360 fusion with instrumentation, L1 to L5 fusion, L5/S1 fusion w/ disc replacement, left and right SI joints fused.
