So I've been going through different doctors mris, xrays, pain management, and physical therapy since I was 10. I finally found a doctor that has had me on the right path and I finally talked to a neurosurgeon and he wants to do surgery... like yesterday! So I find all the details out tomorrow. I just wanted to see if anyone else here had surgery in their lower back for spondylolisthesis and broken vertebrae? How old were you when you got it? Was it worth it? Did it help? I'm only 22 years old and they said more than likely the next vertebrae up will start slipping as well. I'm worried about that but I really want to get this fixed. He said if it gets any worse there won't be anything they can do so it's either now or never.
