I simply do not understand why so many of you are looking forward to having this surgery. It's fraught with problems and limited outcome. It can lead to many more disabilities than the original condition holds. I have constant, chronic pain; never a day passes that I don't wake in agony. And it gets worse. My mobility is decreasing. For every time I push myself beyond my personal pain-barrier, I suffer monumental pain for the following two weeks at least. But, the one thing I'm glad of is that I decided NOT to go ahead with the fusion surgery. Having read the latest studies of this surgery, I see that it really ISN'T worth the risk of ending up in a wheelchair. My GP agrees.
I take my analgaesics and beg for a day that is of minimal pain. There are few of those. BUT surgery is NEVER going to be an option. Not for me.
Good luck to those who've decided to go ahead with surgery......
