Is there decompression w/out fusion??
My MRI suggests broad disc herniation L4-L5.w/spinal canal stenosis. Decompression is recommended but I am in no financial condition to just take 4-5 months off. It' will be tough to recover in a homeless shelter.I have insurance for the surgery but not recovery so fusion does not seem to be a option. my orig. disc surgery was tough enough but..... So, are there alternatives post decompression???
