    Boy, that is a tough question. Do you have back pain, leg pain, instability pain or??? Do you have stenosis? Is your slip isthmic or degenerative? Many unanswered questions.

    I assume you had a TLIF type fusion with a decompression. You still have substantial back and buttocks pain. You need both a new MRI and a new CT scan (CT limited to L4-S1) to determine fusion status and decompression status.
