I am a 45 year old ( soon to be 46 )woman diagnosed with spondolysis. I am peri-menopausal. My specialist says that I will probably require spinal fusion because all other attempts to ease the pain in my L5 S1 have failed.
What percentage of women with similar diagnoses have had a better quality of life after spinal fusion?
Is there any medications that help to ease the pain of spondolysis while I wait for surgery? I had a bad reaction to oral morphine.Did anyone report findings of a drug for a woman with similar situation?
