:S Hi everyone,
I am set to have a fusion done on L-5 S-1 I believe it is. My question is about the back brace my dr. may or may not give me after surgery. Now, when I think of a back brace, I am freaking out cuz I am thinking it is a huge metal thing that you strap onto your back. How big is the brace? Is it metal? Or like fabric? Does it have velcro straps? I sure don't want one of these huge back braces that go from the neck down to the bottom of the spine.
My surgery is set for June 9th of this yr. I am anxious and scared and happy. Happy cuz I am hoping I will be rid of all the pain I suffer from. It has so gotten worse within the last yr. I would love to be able to sleep more than 3hrs at a time at night. I have come to find out what an infomercial is. LOL
Thanks so much for reading. Hopefully I get an answer. I am so scared about the back brace. Probably have no reason to be though. :W
