this is the first surgery ive ever had. i read some of these post and really dont hear any positive answers. has anyone had a L4 L5 decompression laminectomy diskectomy and anterior posterior fusion and thought you were glad you did it? My pain it bearable when im just laying around the house but if i sit or stand for more than a hour it just gets worse and worse. just not sure if i should even bother. any info will be appericated btw the disc is degenerative and herniated.
