Back pain

Hi everyone,

I am Edoardo, 27 years old and I have been suffering chronic pain on back, legs and pelvic area since 2 years old. I had operation of laminectomy of L5-S1 on Dicember 2013 because of a important protrusion disc. After that I had partially benefits in term of pain on anus's schocks and legs although I have still been suffering of burning pain which allows to me to walk just for 30minutes and sit 15 minutes. Next round I could sit 5 and walk not longer than 10. I spend at least 16hours per day on the bed. I have significant benefits when I stand up in the swimming pool. I tried everthing solutions including physio, postural and agopuctire without any results. My last MRI of May 2015 talks about 2 problems:
- degenerative black disc at L5- S1
- modest hernia intra-formanen L5 on left side
I will be really greatful to have referencees only from patient (not doctors) which have passed this situation in order to evaluate what you did to tackle with it.
Rightnow, three neurosurgons have proposed me to operate again. One of them suggested me ADR and the others fusion.
I do like to skip operation because at least the 90% of people which have done are worse than before. Please help me, [edit]
