Hi, my name is Barb. I have had lumbar back problems for 5 yrs now. I have been to 4 surgeons, had 2 discograms, epidurals, PT, just to name a few. disks at L2-3, L3-4, & L4-5 are shot.
I have been given the option of having a 2 level fusion or a 3 level fusion. with the 2 level it is most likely i will need another surgery down the road. with a 3 level I am told I will be very stiff & have decreased mobility.
PLEASE, if anyone has faced a similar situation share your thoughts with me. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO, but the pain is to much to bear, i have lost everything i have ever worked for, including my home because i can't work.
