Having a congenital fusion of the lumbar spine is unusual and two separate levels is even more unusual. Having two levels fused does not mean future surgery by itself. There are many patients who undergo two level fusions and do well the rest of their life.

Now sciatica is another issue. You might have a compression of a nerve root from a disc herniation or bone spur (see foraminal collapse on the website). A workup would be in order.
