Hey there everybody. I was wondering if anyone has chosen to let their spine fuse itself versus a surgical fusion? My docs say my spine is working toward fusing itself. I have lost considerable disc height from L3-S1 with developing stenosis and ddd. I am only 35 years old and have been fighting this problem for over 12 years intermittently, daily for over 18 months now. I was offered a referral to consult with another spine surgeon, but I have declined. The last 3 surgeons won't operate because of my age. I am wondering if an Autofusion is preferable to a surgical fusion and if anyone has any experience with an Autofusion. Thanks for your help!
DDD & spinal stenosis L4-S1 since 2001
30+ injections, PT, massage therapy, accupuncture, TENS unit, meds, etc but no surgical intervention
I am not a surgical candidate
