Sadly no I dont; know the answer, I am indeed facing my first surgery with so many questions of my own. However, my husband has had two surgeries on his back, he has multiple herniated discs and should go back for spinal fusion, but he wont go because he thinks the two surgeries already performed made maters worse on the other disc's, resulting in the need for fusion. He is convinced had he not had the surgeries done he would not be in half the pain he is already in.

Not sure if this helps or not.
