I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses and recently saw a neurosurgeon who wasn't willing to operate without blood and also I have osteopenia. I've got an appointment with another neurosurgeon (but unfortunately not until July) who has performed fusions without blood.
I have spondylolisthesis and stenosis.
Is there anyone here who has had or knows of someone who's had a lumbar fusion without a blood transfusion?
