I'm new & think I posted in the wrong forum a while ago & can't find my post. Anyway I'm scheduled on March 4th for the above surgery on L4 & L5. I have spinal stenosis & a couple ruptured disks.
I've done the epidurals, pyh. therapy, walking all that I can do really. I also have arthritis, DDD, & fibromyalgia. I'm 47 yrs. old & have had the disk trouble for over 20 yrs. now. I'm a mess.
I really hope this surgery helps me, I haven't even been able to sleep in my bed for a year or so now, I sleep in a recliner. Not real good for the marriage.
I been married for 23 yrs. & have 3 kids, 2 out on their own & we have a 12 yr. old son at home yet.
I have a wonderful spine surgeon & am very nervous about having the surgery.
I hope to find someone who's had this surgery & get some insight.
