Well I am new to the group and I don't know what to do. I am 26 years old and have had back problems since 2005 due to car accidents. I have tried all conventional treatments and pain medicine which all have failed to stop the pain or help. Last June I had a diskectomy on my L4, L5-S1 and it didn't work either and I hurt so much it is hard to do anything. My doctor wants me to have a fusion done and I don't know what to do. I am a single mother of two boys ages 9 and 6, my fear is this surgery isn't going to work and I am going to rob my boys of having fun and time with me. I am young, so if it doesn't work what do I have to look forward to a life of pain and regret from doing the surgery? I do not know anyone who has had the surgery and every person I talk to tells me not to do it. Anyone who has done it advice please!!!!!
