Post fused lower back with pain down leg

Hi group,

My husband was just dx with a fused lower back spinal bones which is impinging a nerve so that he has pain shooting down his leg. Does anyone know what the treatment for this condtion is? The Neurologist wants him to go for a surgical consult. I hope someone will answer me if you have this sort of condition. Thanks. I appreciate your help.

I got one idea from reading the posts here, something called facet injections?

Hi Buddhabuoy,

You may want to post this question on the Back problems Board. I'm normally over there because I started with having back surgery and now know I have arthritis. Someone there should be able to help you.

Good luck,
