arthritic bony spurs surgery

Hello,am very concerned about the arthritic bony spur surgery which is coming up for me. My Kaiser Doctor said, surgery is justified,have collapsed bony spurs which the pain specialist said,he could not inject any pain killer as, there is no space between spurs. I am Sick of all this medication and the constant headaches and pain are making my life unbearable.
Doctor has said he has seen some patients improve, some have no differance in the pain and he said he has seen very disabling results.
Has anyone outthere had this surgery??In Kaiser???I can go to any Kaiser. Please help.

Re: arthritic bony spurs surgery

i have had bone spurs in my back for 30+ yrs now. i have not heard of collapsed spurs however. i was given back then, the same overall results. i chose not to mess with my back, unless something is positive result only. i would definitely get a second opinion on this one!........bevann
