After many years of pain in my lower back and legs, I'm having spine fusion surgery. Will surgery make my pain go away?
Ideally, surgery will help lessen your pain. The main goals of spine fusion surgery are to prevent movement between the section of your spine that is causing your pain and to stop your problems from progressing. After surgery, your doctor and a physical therapist can help you pinpoint the source of your remaining pain and find ways to manage it.
