My pain is very low back, under the butt and down my left leg. I have had several ESI injections in the past, PT, and hospital traction when the disc first herniated. Sometimes I had improvement for short periods of time but after an auto accident last year it got so much worse and nothing helped. A discogram & CAT scan was done 3 weeks ago and it showed L5/S1 was severely damaged, and the L3 bulging. I wish I knew more about the fusion surgery, but basically mine is going to be the traditional posterior, 2 posts & 4 screws but with cadaver bone instead of my own being removed and used. I'm sure I'll encounter additional problems as I have an internal illeostomy pouch from colon cancer. That is what is preventing an anterior approach and use of my own bone tissue from being used.
