Hi! I am looking for some info and this surgery, i'm due to go in the 25th for it. Less then a week. I just would like to know someones experience with it. I'm having a rib removed to get to the area and a fusion. I've had a fusion in the lumbar region and a laminectomy but heard this is a little worse. I'm having a hard time finding any info on the internet about it. Thanks Sher

  • hi,

    I can only comment on my recent t10 op, i was not the nicest experience, as i had to stay on flat bed rest for so long.

    I am sure you will be fine and in excellent hands, just take it easy when you come out.

    hope all is going well for you.

  • I HAVE HAD THE T-R TO L3 FUSED WITH ROD'S,THOUGH MINE WAS TO FIX SCOLISOIS,IT WAS A TOUGH SURGERY,.
