  • was lumbar fusion! (PLIF)
    I think my sciatica was caused by the severe stenosis I had on my cord and nerve roots, due to a forward slip of my vertebra (spondylolisthesis).

    I had a laminectomy, facetectomy, total disc removal and cage inserted with pedicle screws and rods.

    That doesn't mean that you can't get relief with far less invasive treatment!! I hope that you can :-)
