Im booked in for a L1-S5 spinal fusion and decompression on the 21st september at my local hospital , to say that im nervous is an understatement , however im really hoping this will help me get back to work ,
I have a final meeting with my DR on the 10th to dicuss which approach he will be taking on my body !!
My main problem is a Spondylolytic defect at L5 with grade 2 spondylolisthesis of L on S1 , this was the diagnosis two years ago and has got worse ,
I have had physio , accupunture and 3 spinal injections which have all failed to work ,
Im also getting pains in my legs and cant sleep very well at night .
