| | lupus & spinal surgery?
Has anyone here had spinal surgery, at the L4/L5 level? I haven't had second opinion yet, which I want for sure, but my orthopedic dr is insisting I have surgery ASAP. He discounts the idea that lupus, sjogrens or the fact that I've been taking prednisone for several years could have any effect. This is all frightening me.
