The step-off is a result of a degenerative disc and degenerative facets (see degenerative spondylolisthesis). The step-off will be fused once the posterior fusion is solid. The actual displacement of the vertebra will not give you trouble once the fusion is solid.

Please keep us informed about your progress.
