I've dealt with back issues going on 7 years now. I've had countless epidural injections, pain meds, steroids, a previous laminectomy, and physical therapy. I'm now a few weeks away from lumbar spinal fusion surgery on L4-L5, L5-S1. I guess by posting this I'm hoping to talk to others who have gone through this to ask questions about their experiences through surgery and recovery. I'm also hoping I may come across a few people having similar operations around they same time so we can share our experiences during the process.
