I've got Spondylolisthesis and it's recommended that I get my L3,4& 5 fused.
I'm 50. I also have DDD, Osteoarthritis, Sciatica, Arachnoditis, Scoliosis, AND every Disk in my Lumbar area is herniated on both sides.
I DO NOT WANT Fusion, but don't think I have a choice. I sound like Nick Friggin Nolte trying to get out of bed in the morning.
ANY Advice on wether to get fusion or not is GREATLY appreciated.
Currently - for pain - I take Morphine, Percocet, Tramadol, & Lyrica.
I also have a tens unit which can, on occasion, be helpful
Thank you so much.
