My Dr. wants to cut open my belly to fuse my spine from the other side. I've had 5 back operations already. The last time they put in 6 screws and 3 plates but the bone fusion part didn't work. That is why my doc wants to go through the front. Should I allow him to do the operation or am I better off trying to fuse the same area again from the back instead of the front. I am only 35 yrs old.Had my 1st back operation when I was 19. I am so sick of being in pain all the time.PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVISE.
