I have been told by 2 Surgeons that I need to have a fusion at the L5/S1 Leval because I have Internal Disc disruption and an annular Tear At L5 S1. I have done 1 year of physical therapy, 1 yr of chiropractic care, and 6 cortisone injections and my insurance company is denying my fusion surgery because they say my back is not unstable.
My disk is pushing on my nerve and causes pain in my legs which causes me to fall down alot. I have tried everything and nothing works.
My insurance company is united health care i have been appealing this for 1.5 year and they keep denying it. i need suggestions of how to get them to approve my surgery
