I'm excited to have the above surgery in November but extremely terrified. I can't take the pain any longer and want to be able to walk more than just a couple of blocks at a time w/o debilitating pain.
I don't want more fused than necessary but don't want another surgery if avoidable so I ask this question.... How much less movement does a person have after L5/S1 fusion. I have read that there is little movement to begin with so would I be losing that much more if I had all 3 fusions done as opposed to the 2? Would the recovery time still be about the same?Welcome to Spine-Health
