So I finally stopped being a weeny and scheduled the surgery. Theyre gonna check the bone growth to see if its strong enough, if it is, theyre gonna remove the hardware to see if thats what causing the pain. If it isnt, theyre gonna redo the fusion using bigger screws.
Here we go again. Its been 15 months since my L5-S1 fusion. I'm weird about this next surgery. The first time I didnt know what it was gonna be like after surgery. This time I KNOW. MAJOR PAIN!!! Just the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach. All the problems I had with my breathing, the being unable to get out of bed, not able to toll myself over, shower myself, dress myself....using a walker...ugh.
I know Im venting but It just scares the hell outta me like I said.
If anyone has any info to share about revision surgeries please go ahead.
