Spondylolisthesis- some advice please
I have 50% slippage according to my consultant. I am in constant pain and unable to stand for more then a few mintues. My right toe always seem to be numb. However, on a good day I am able to walk for a mile without too much pain.Although I have oxycodine prescribed I only take this as a last resort for fear of getting too used to it.
I have been advised by my consultant to go for fusion. Although the quality of my life is not brilliant, I manage.
I am fearful that if I have the operation I may be in a worst situation but I am also feel that if I do not have the op I might devalope some problems which may not be reversable. Any advise, suggestions , experience etc will be really apprecaited in order for mre to amke a decision.
