Thanks for all the time and information you have all posted. I found out I need to have a 360 degree fusion to the L4/L5 with hardwear and disc spacer??? I was happy to hear something could be done for the pain I have had for years. Too many injections to count and way too long on pain meds. I look forward to starting the journey to a pain free life. Thanks again for the information and I hope I can help out someone else in the future.
