I am going to document the S1 to L4 fusion of my wife to give you our prospective. My wife is 43 in good health (other than this). She is in surgery right now. We had numerous ortho, nuro, ortho/nuro surgeons we consulted before moving forward with the surgery. With pain in her left leg all the way down to her foot and the possibility of loosing mobility and bowl movement we knew we needed "help". MRI's and X-rays confirmed that the disc space between s1 and L4 was bad. After long discussions we opted for surgery. Surgery is underway today Dec 18, 2014. Merry Xmas to us. I will keep everyone up to date on the progress. Sorry I am not using all the medical mumbo jumbo but if you want to know anything specific I am sure I can answer it. 3 hours into the surgery.....
