Hello all I'm new to the site and come across it just asking Google the simple question is a spinal fusion worth it ?

Well with out boring you all with my life story :)
from 2006 to 2010 I've had 3 discectomies a discogram spinal injections a good few MRI's and x-rays physiotherapy took a lot of meds all different and now was told the next and only thing left is a fusion
this is on L5/S1
i have left leg pain in my butt cheek and down my leg and then from the back of my calf to the left side of my foot affecting my toes
on my fist op i was completely pain free and was very happy until i fell down the stirs bam the pain was almost instantaneous and has not been good since
