I just came back from an appt. w/ my surgeon and am going to be having a fusion at the levels listed in my subject line. He said I will have two different incision sites...One in the front and one in the back. Is this normal? I am scared to death...I went in there hoping for a double disc replacement...but see now that is so not feasable due to insurance coverage etc.
Any info or experiences would be great. I pray to god I am doing the right thing...but am in so much everyday pain, I cant see it getting much worse.
My recent discogram really showed my discs are severly degenerated and have grade 5 tears in both.
Thanks for any info.
