lumber back fusion
I am in Montana: I would like to hear from people who have had back surgery. I went to a neurosurgeon yesterday, I have stress fractures in l4,l5,s1 with a bulging disk at l5. I went to this visit on a reservation of rights by workers comp. I need a TKR which the os will not do until my back is fixed. Fusion only has a 50% rate of reducing pain. Has anyone had a disk replacement ? The rate of pain relief % is much higher. I am going for a second opion, on my own Ins. This is a big deal to me, life changing. My second question is what will workers comp do with my bennifits? If they do not pay for my back even though I said it has hurt to every Dr. for the last 2 years after a fall downs the stairs, after I had a fulkerson osteotomy, that has failed. The recovery time for this surgery is quite long. Please anyone have any ideas.
