Hi everyone, I am new on this site, but have been reading posts for a while. I am due to have an L4/5 instrumented postero-lateral fusion and decompression here in Edinburgh, Scotland on September 29th.
I would love to here from anyone who has had this, and especially I would like to know how much help I will need after the operation? I live with my son who is 20, and I am worried I will be kicked out of the hospital too soon (I am told 3 days) and not be able to cope at home.
Any advice anyone?
