I have a diskectomy of L5-S1 2/2006. My pain is worse & worse. I have a depression about 1 inch X 1 inch above the surgical site that appear to be my spines way of making up for the missing disk. It seems to be bending and denting in, like a hole. I now think the dr should have fused me, to give my spine some support. I am 1 1/2 inch shorter than before surgery. I go back to the dr. 6/08/07 and I was going to demand a fusion. This morning I have read horror story after another for chronic, continuied, pain after fusion. I can't live the next 30 yrs in this pain, I'll be dead in a few years with all the pills I am ingesting if I don't treat the cause of the pain. I don't want t bring more suffering..
