Back Surgery in your 30s?
I have a family member who is having back issues, debilitating spasms happened once about ten years ago and once about 5 years ago, diagnosed with spondiolesthesis, degeneration of the L5/S1 disk. She has had two debilitating episodes since giving birth, recently. Her PCP is sending her for PT and then hopes to get an MRI approved. The PT is worth a shot as abdominal muscles are pretty useless postpartum. However, I am wondering if anyone has had experience with surgery for this? A friend mentioned spacers. I'm researching, but would love to hear some anecdotal evidence.25 replies
