My name is Ann. It's nice to be here.
I have been reading these boards since I found them a month ago. It has been so helpful with lots of information.
I had a TLIF L3-4 L4-5 last week. I think I'm doing ok, but I am so afraid I'm going to do something wrong and mess up the surgery or the screws or something. Does anyone else have that problem? I work in a hospital, so I will be off for 8-12 wks (so the NS says). I have to stand most of the day and wear a lead apron. It scares me to even think about going back to work. But I am not one to stay home, either.
