HI Bill, mmhh can't understand somethings you mentioned but others are so familiar to me. I had a "decrease" space also on L5-S1. Also a herniation to the Right that was pinching my nerve. The "decrease" space they called it "collapsed disc".. they couldn't really do much about it, only fuse it if continues to hurt really bad. The doctor only did hemilaminectomy/discectomy
to me since according to him, I was too young to be fused. He says if it continue to hurt after a year we would talk about having a fusion. It has been 14 months post surgery.. still hurts but no as bad. Makes me take a pain killer now every 3 days. That is a big improvement from after popping up a LOT of painkiller everyday through they day.
Do I need a fusion in the future? I don't know.. So far I think I should leave it as it is.. they say doing too many things to one disc can be more harmful than good.
ah ... and any kind of Tylenol, is like m&m s to me. Don't do a thing to me.
