HI I had been suffering with spinal stenosis, slipped disc, spondylothesis and I also have a synovial disc on my spine. Was in excruciating pain for a whole year, 4mos out of that year I resulted to using a cane just to get to the bathroom, couldnt sit walk stand or drive for the whole 4mos. I actually really didnt want be on this earth anymore if I had to live like that. Did all the conservative therapys faithfully and was getting worser worser.
Finally was scheduled for surgery which was suppose to be Jan 9 2019, I have rescheduled the surgery. MIRACULOUSLY 2 mos ago the pain went away Im almost back to my normal self.
MY question to you guys is should I still have a spinal fusion?
Am I causing more damage by mot getting it done?
I just cant see me getting 6screws in my back and IM doing any and everything. I still have some pain in calves but can live with it.
FYI: I have not been on those additive drugs, ive tried them but to no avail... I only take flexeril and tylenol.
HAS ANYONE BEEN IN THIS SITUATION?
