Hi all, great board that I started reading today. I am having a posterior lumbar fusion (L3-4,L4-5) on Thursday. I am nervous but dealing with it pretty good. I have had 11 years of pain and finally have a doctor that will do the surgery.
How long can I expect to be in surgery?
What can I expect the first couple days?
How did you deal with going to the bathroom?
Where you able to sit on a couch the first couple weeks or was it completely laying down in bed?
