Well, I got the news today. I am sure everyone knows my history. 34 year old retired cop after on duty motorcycle crash. ACDF C6-7 ACDF C7-T1, Anterior Posterior L4-L5,L5-S1. My most recent surgery was ACDF C7-T-1 in FEB. One week after surgery, my legs went weak while walking my three year old down stairs at home. Slipped landed on my ass and holy shit it really hurt.
I had an MRI a couple of weeks ago. My thoracic is all jacked up. Moderate bulging T6-7, Severe Herniation T7-8,Severe herniation T-8-T-9 and moderate bulging T-9-T-10. I have severe upper back pain and burning all the way to my neck. It hurts to urinate and to go #2. My surgeon said two epidurals this week and he is hoping to get surgery approved for thoracic. He said minimum two levels and maybe all four. They will decide as it gets closer too the surgery date.
Has anyone had thoracic surgery. He said in terms of pain, the surgery is similar to my lower back anterior posterior surgeries. I am curious on what to expect and how much pain and how long I may spend in the hospital. Thanks for any input!!
