Need help please advise
I've been following discussions on here for a while now and am scared and confused as to what to do. I have a degenerative disk, L4, and was born without my L5/S1. I am scheduled for spinal fusion surgery September 17th but after reading so many post-op stories on here that were not successful I really don't think I want to go through with it. The docs are afraid that they are going to hit my nerve with the screws and cause leg pain for life because I have "tiny bones" and it is causing a big risk for shooting the screw right through the bone. I don't know what to do. My husband thinks I should just keep taking my hydrocodone and put off the surgery indefinitely. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
