Spondylolysis

Has anyone had L-5 & sacrum vertebrae Spondylolysis and had surgery? How did it turn out? Was it helpful, or did it make things worse?

I was born with the same thing and had a L4-L5 lower lumbar fusion and it did not help me. Others say they have had some good results from the surgery but I chalk that up to what condition the rest of their back was in prior to the surgery. I now have severe nerve damage on both sides of my fusion that has not gone away for 6 years + now. I have had numerous denervation injections/nerve taps & blocks and nothing has worked. For some people it has worked but it sure changed my life for the worse or maybe I was just that bad off in the first place I'm not really sure. Still trying to figure out my back issues. Good Luck.
