I have been living with extreme pain as you all are - for 18 mos since my injury - a fracture of L3L4 pars. Due to insurance issues, i am being forced to choose an inadequate settlement or have fusion surgery. I am worried about lifelong issues after a double fusion, but at this point cannot work, sleep etc.
I would love to hear anyone that has had this surgery - did you get relief? If so, how long? Does it relieve the pain? Because I don't care about the fracture, i just want the pain to stop so i can go on w my life. The surgery scares me, i don't feel like it will help in the long run.
