I suggest you consult a musculo-skeletal specialist or other appropriate specialist and address the concerns you have about this procedure. At the end of the day it is your decision but it may as well be an informed one.

Providing your injury is stable and activity is not causing further damage then really pain is the major restriction. For many pain conditions there is no magic cure. Pain and inactivity result in a downward spiral, less activity, more pain, more pain, less activity. It is sometimes a matter of finding what works best to reduce pain and increase function to maintain a level of fitness get you as close to "normal" as possible. The body and mind responds well to activity so its just finding a way to get there while also finding the balance with rest and recuperation.

At one stage I spent 20 hours a day laying down. It became hell. Fortunately I found effective pain relief and got going again. Never will get back to normal and I go thru bad periods, but I try and go in right direction most of the time.

My other half was EXITED after 3 years on ACC with 8 vertabrae broken in his back. He still lives with the pain but says the pain ACC cause due to stress and the pain of an empty wallet is far worse than the pain he lives with everyday.

Sadly this is all to common
Some of our lives will never be the same,this prompted me to seek information and understand my situation better,taking control of my life and health care when ever posisble to minimise the collateral damaged caused by the system
Longivity is my main outlook for life these day's and my motivator to get by
