From Laminectomy with synovial cyst removal to DLIF

From Laminectomy with synovial cyst removal to Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion
I am a Flight Attendant injured my back in 2014 because of turbulence
Long story short, had a LSCR, cured my syatica left leg. Then started having pain in right side hip a Lumbard 5 6. After 2 years and still not returning to my job, the 3rd surgeon advice is to do a Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion.
Since my first surgery was not a success I am very leery about having the fusion. I have tried all the luxurious shots, PT, etc. did not work.
I am now in my late 50s do about an hours sanding before I need to take a break Which leads me to believe that I cannot do a 14 hour day as a fight attendant, this totally depresses me because I want to go back to my job
Getting a second opinion tomorrow I am totally against another surgery but my doctor won't release me until I have the surgery I'm so confused!
Anyone else have this direct lateral interbody fusion if so can you give me some insight and your results in recovery

Re: From Laminectomy with synovial cyst removal to DLIF

Welcome to the board. First, I think the question is: do you need a fusion? I think that needs to be decided before you consider which procedure would be best for your body and your symptoms.

Do you have sciatic pain? Has the cyst grown back? What was the location of the laminectomy?
