So I had my l4/l5 fused January of 2016. Good until march/April of this year. Ended up getting severe back pain and knew it was my disc. Got an MRI with a bulged disc with an annular disc tearing at L5/S1. Hurts like heck. PT was finished with no help. And even flared it up a few visits. My Primary doctor pretty much said surgery will probably need to happen if Injections are not helpful.
Now if surgery happened I have a feeling I'd rather just get it fused and done with like how mine was completed. I've heard mixed thoughts on aDiscectomy, but what do yall think/Have experienced? What is possible if my L4/L5 is fused, and my L5/S1 disc is done for?
