Has anyone heard of this condition? Yesterday I went to see a Family doctor for a referral to the Orthopedic clinic. This doctor was an as-@ole to me and didn't explain what it is. I had been diagnosed with spondylolisthesis about 8 years ago so all this time that is what I thought my condition was and explained that to the doctor. He said, "that isn't what the radiologist wrote down in his report" . If anyone knows what spondylisis is, please please explain it to me. All I know is that , according to the jerk Dr., it is a form of arthritis and surgery will not correct it. It is in my L5. I feel so hopeless because when I saw my other Ortho doc years ago he said that eventually I may need surgery to correct my problem. Now, I don't even seem to have surgery as a last resort.
