Hi Everyone, my surgery is coming sept 9th and I'm scared! I love my neurosurgeon and he's the best in the area.. been practicing for 30 yrs. I totally connect with him and that also brings comfort.
I plan to have a cyst removed from one of my lower discs. I feel retarded not know what level it is but will find out. I believe it's L4, After cyst removal I will also have a fusion in that same area.
I've been reading up on all to expect but my biggest curiousity is how in the world do you "wipe your bum" while recovering from a fusion when you're in a chair brace? Truly there's got to be a good answer.
Meanwhile, any and all helpful information about "WHAT TO EXPECT?" and RECOVERY TIME" would be appreciated.
I'm at a desk job and wonder if I can get back to work before 8 wks??
Look forward to hearing from those who can help me.
