Hello ive just seen a specialist who looked over my mri scan and said I have too options to have an injection or too have L5 S1 fusion surgery. What do you guys think shouldn't I take the injection first before surgery and see how that goes as he said theres a 70% chance of improvement with the injection and 80% with the surgery, so im thinking the injection is a much easier option plus not being layed up for months after as I would like to get back to my life and job. Should I take the injection then if nothing go for the surgery. Also since this all started in december my left arm and leg are numb and weak day in day out thanks you
