I have had a series of spinal injections and a

I have had a series of spinal injections and a procedure to burn the nerves about 4 years ago. The back pain has been back for about 3 months now. I had a series of 3 injections then a different injection right into the joints. The Neurosurgeon wants to talk to me about a spinal fusion. I am afraid. But as it stands right now I cannot exercise or walk very far or stand for very long. I do OK sitting in my recliner but to sit in a chair outside I cannot handle the pain. I feel that I am just getting weaker and weaker. HELP PLEASE!

I just received my MRI and I have a10mm tear and - 8mm tear in my disk, I also gave disk disease. And have a disk touching my L4 nerve. The doctor did a spinal injection. However, I have had 2 RFs, afew series of injections followed by visits to PT, DO, Accupun. Massages. And nothing works. I suggested I wanted to have a SCS Spinal Cord Stimulater. But he wants to do all that junk again and I don t want to waste money and time. What should I do.
