I am a 78 male. On 7april09 at USC I had a successful Mitral valve and tricuspid valve repair. My EF is 50 - 55 %. Can perform all
physical functions with ease. Problem is my
back: There is moderate dextroscoliosis with severe spondylotic change with vacuum phenomenon L2 - L3, L3 - L4 and to a lesser extent L4 - L5 with a near total loss of disc space at L5-S1. After 30 minutes of brisk walking I am hurting.
Low back pain, right hip-buttox and rt leg. Am I a viable candidate for surgery?
