I've seen a post in the past covering those who were going in for surgery in a time frame, so I though I'd start one for December.
I am going in to have the new bone growth from the bmp removed as well as the hardware used for my TLIF a year ago.
I am nervous about the pain. My surgeon during my pre-op appt stated again and again because I am on "high levels of Kadian, a strong pain killer, you are going to be in a lot of pain." That scared me big time. I feel that he's not going to work with me on my pain. Yes, I did express this to him. I was seriously considering canceling the procedure after this meeting. He got that feeling as well, pulled me aside, and cleared the air.
I hope this works and look forward to the feeling of relief.
Anybody else scheduled for this month?
