I am a 20 year old female that has been suffering from severe arthritis in the lumbar region since 14. I recently had an MRI and it showed that I now have a severe herniated disc. I am being given the option to either just clean up the herniated disc, or do a fusion at L4-L5 and L5-S1. Any pros/cons to either of these surgeries?
