On Monday 11/16/09 I had decompression laminectomy with pedical screw fusion at L4/5. The surgery went very well. It was over within 3 housrs. I am still hospitalized due issues with pain. The PCA Morphine was helping for very limited times. So, they are now trying IV demerol and switching between oral percocet and lortab. Hopefully some cocktail will work and I can go home tomorrow. Or thursday at the latest. I can say every nurse, tech, surgical team etc, Have been great. I have never received such good treatment at a hospital. Really has been surprising.
Btw, my previous pain seems to be relieved. Thats the whole point of this.
Thanks my Friends,
