I have been troubled with back pain for many years and now getting worse. I have had many tests including MRI which shows that degenerative Lr-L5 and L5-S1with spondylose and arthroses.

I am told b y my Orthopedist and Neuro Surgeon that I need an operation which is major. It means going through my belly and then I am turned over and into my back.

I can't make a decision to go ahead. The problem is the nerves are being pinched and is effecting my ability to walk or stand for more than 20 min.

Any advice would be appreciated

Joseph
