I have been told by two different Surgical Orthopedists that I need a 4 level fusion to my lower spine. I have severe lower back pain and have been diagnosed with DDD. One of my disks has almost completely degenerated. I have also been informed ( by the same SO's) that a 4 level fusion of the lower spine is considered "unethical" as the procedure has a success rate in the single digits. I have almost been on bedrest for a year, taking prescribed meds for pain. I see a PT on a regular basis, as well as an Acupuncturist. I am open to any suggestions/opinions at this point. Please help!
