Slip of spine L4-L5 and fracture of L3 and tingling shin

Hello. I have come here looking to see if anyone has the same conditions as I have and what your course of action has been. Surgery? Pain management?
My MRI results state that I have L4/5 spondylolysis and Nerve Stenosis of L4-5. Also a fracture in L3.
Surgery recommended is L3 to L5 fusion anterior and posterior.
Currently I am just pain medication and have had a series of injections that sometimes work and sometimes backfire. Trying to not have surgery but it is seeming inevitable.
I'd would be pleased to hear any successful or unsuccessful outcomes from anyone else.
My age is 55 and I am athletic.
Thanks you in advance.
