So i had lumbar fusion at L5-S1 in January of this year. Been in severe pain since. They gave me an epidural cortisone injection 2 weeks ago and it almost trippled my pain. Now i'm going for another fusion surgery tomorrow morning. They will fuse L4 along with L5-S1. My last MRI said that i had a 12mm instability at L5-S1 and severe nerve pinching between L5-S1 so he said that he will have to remove that vertebrae. Did i hear right or am i not understanding what he meant. If it is right, how will my spine ever be free of instabilities? Any thoughts?
