I'm reading a lot about different surgeries on here and I thank everyone. But I can't find anyone who has had or will have exactly what I'm having on March 16th. I know that we are all different but I'm just wondering if anyone out there has had this much fusion and 2 surgeries in 1 week? See below. A little nervous to say the least. This site though has been great...the "tips" the "dos and don'ts"...everyone is so helpful.

Stage 1:
L1-S1 PSF/I (Depuy Monarch); Osteotomy L2-3, L3-4, L4-5, L5-S1; placement of antibiotic beads

Stage 2:
ALIF (Synthes) at L5-S1, XLIF L2-3, L3-4, L4-5 (Nuvasive)
PSF/I L1-Pelvis (Monarch)
