Re: Bak cages or standard lumbar fusion ?advise please
I expect you wiil get a lot of different opinions on this subjet, I would have thought the less invasive surgery would be best if you have a choice, But then again i do not know much about that procedure except you say its microsurgery which is less invasive on your body not as big a trauma for you.
I had the same area fused as you with cages rods and screws,And unfortunatly i'm having a rough time at this present time (i'm ten months post op) But a lot of people should recover alot quicker than me, I have another prob disc that needs sorting, There are some very positive stories on this board about fusions you should take a look then get intouch with those people. they would only be to willing to help, They were in your shoes once.
