Maybe another fusion

I have a C5,6,7 fusion 8 years ago. Stable but hurts. No action needed now.
Also I have fusion L5 to S1 and now I have big problems with L3, L4
Any ideas on how restricted the mobility would be if ortho surg fused L3 and L4

It will limit any twisting movement, so if you are an avid golfer or play a lot of tennis, it is my understanding that you would notice a change in mobility. I am fused from L3 to S1. I haven't really noticed much difference.

For what it is worth, which isn't much, some of us prefer an orthopedic spine surgeon to a neurosurgeon. Depends on many factors....

That's encouraging. Thanks. I'm waiting for the results on an MRI that I got a few days ago.
