Well folks, hi again. I was called by my surgeons nurse on wed evening to come in first thing in the morning on thurs.
I am going to have a new surgery- spinal fusion.
PLF/TLIF using cadavor bones and pull stem cell from my hip bone. Into the same incision as my discectomy. alof PT, but I will have that at home instead of 100 miles away. He will close with staples after 2 weeks after. There will be hardware. 6months MMI. I think iI will be having this surgery in the next 30-45 days. He says I need to ween myself off the pain meds until then. I dont know I am going to work like this:( So tell e what I am in for folks? What are some good things for me to purchase to help me after the surgery? My nerves are totally shot. thanks in advance.
