Re: Spinal Fusion L5 S1 on the 14th with fibromyalgia. What to expect.

You'll want to post on the back pain board as well. This board tends to cover cervical level pain whereas the back pain board does more lumbar.

I had a lumbar fusion in 1993 and did relatively well. I tend to have a lot of orthopedic problems so I don't know that I'll ever be pain free but I always make the best effort to get the right treatment - even if it's surgery.
