Just wanted to introduce myself. This seems like a great community, and I hope I can contribute, and also maybe get some questions answered from others that have struggled with similar issues. I am a 32 year old female with DDD in the L5-S1. I have been active my whole life, was a Division I collegiate athlete, turned ultra-runner. And everything came to a halt about 2 1/2 years ago. I'll save the details for another post. But I am hoping for some insights on the factors that helped you all make the decision to actually have a spinal fusion. Thank you!
