I have posted here and received some great advice.. I am going in for an L5/S1 fusion on Tuesday the 20th. Please keep me and my family in your prayers. I am somewhat nervous but have spoken to 3-4 people the last few weeks that have recently had this same type of surgery with my doctor and they feel that they have gotten their lives back. I have prayed about it for weeks and know that whatever happens, it is God's will and it is meant to be.. I will keep you all posted from the time I go in throughout my recovery!! Think good thoughts!
