Hi, I'm 25 years old I had a microdisceptomy in 2013 L4/5. Seemed to fix the problem until June 2016. Since then in the last 6 months I've had 3 further disceptomys. I'm still having pains in my lower back and affecting my left leg, to the point where I can only do so much before been unable to walk. I've been off work 12 months due to all my operations. I met with my surgeon last week who is now saying the last and only option is a spinal fusion, I have an MRI on Thursday to determine what's actually going wrong with my discs, at 25 years old as you can imagine it's been the most horrific 12 months of my life and really just want it over and done with. What I'm wanting to know is has anyone got any success stories with the fusion? I'm just worried as my surgeon said it's 50:50 wether it will work if the discs decide to fuse together or not. Any advice with what to do next would be a massive help!
