Jodi, I sympathize!! I had my problems at 35, but feel for you in the "quality of life" issue.    I have read a lot of stuff and have had two surgeries myself (luckily no fusions as of yet!)  I am still having problems with my L5-S1 herniation and nerve compression. The surgery wasn't too bad for me and the situation did clear up to certainly bearable after about 2 years of healing and various med strategies.  However, I am now back into pain and numbness et. al in my leg.  If I were you, I would see aobut coming stateside and getting a second opinion.  If there is one thing I learned after surgery #1 is get a second opinion.  There are lots of "back sites" on the net too. My thoughts and best wishes are with you!
