decompression-full blown fusion

So I don't really have a question, just an update om my situation. On Thursday I was seen by a spine specialist thru lsu Shreveport. he ordered x-rays of both my hips and cat-scan of my lower lumbar. he informed me that if x-rays were negative on my hips then the cat-scan would determine his/ my next move. if the cat-scan showed no movement of the spondylolisthesis, a simple decompression would be performed. if the spondylolisthesis shown movement then a full fusion would be performed. either way, I will need surgery. I'm at some peace knowing what's coming. I am grateful to have a place to at least voice what's going on. Thanks for that. Respectfully, Richard Carson
