Hi. My name is michaelz. I've had spine problems for years and have previously had surgery twice (once to remove a tumor and once to remove a disc (at T3/T4) that had ruptured and herniated. Last year I was diagnosed with a spondylolisthesis in the upper thoracic area. The vertebra had slipped forward. I just had another MRI done, and it seems it's moved even farther forward. My condition (pain) has worsened considerably. xxxxxx Hospital is recommending spinal fusion as I've tried therapy without results, and I'm getting worse. Anyone have experience with this?
