Re: lumbar surgery

Thanks teteri66. I am having surgery fri. The surgeon told me that if i have l2-l5 surgery i have a 50-60% of success. He is doing the l1-s1 fusion w/o cages the t12-l1 shows little signs of deterioration. I have collapsed,degenerated disc at l1-2,l3-4 and l4-5, and migrated disc fragments l5-s1 level. I was wondering about not having t.he l1 done and one doctor agreed .another just wanted to do l3-l5 fusion with cages another wanted to do the same but commented that this probably won't work.?? I just wanted to know about the effect of the l1 on movement. Thanks again.
