Third Surgery, May be Fusion ?? HELP !

Hi Everyone,
I'm looking for advice, I've had a micodiscecomy/laminectomy in March 01.
I then needed another discectomy in Nov. 01 ( both were on L5/S1 )
I never really have been pain free since the second surgery. Mostly back pain, but now it is going down my butt and leg again.
The Doc told me after the second one that there is a good chance I will someday need a Fusion, Since there is no disc left. I'm afraid that day is near!!
I'm wondering does anyone know of any other options for me? I really dont want a fusion. From what I've read here it seems like a very sloww healing process.
Any thoughts would help!
Thanks Dave
