Hi Ronni, sorry about your back troubles. I also have L5-S1 issues and don't need surgery yet. Sometimes it seems like everyone I have talked to that has had surgery feels good for awhile, then the pain comes back. Is that what happened to you?
The best exercise is if you can find something that does not cause you pain and you enjoy doing. I would have never expected this to be a good workout for me, but since I am so tight in the lower back and hips, Bollywood Dance Workout and Bollywood Booty Workout are really helpful for me. I just modify it where I have to, and skip parts that are too hard on my back.
