I have been diagnosed with DDD in both the cervical and lumbar spine. I am suposed to have surgury on c5/6 doc says he will do anterior disectomy. I am also suposed to have surgury on my lumbar L 3/4. Does any one know how long the waiIt is between surguries? Also I am horribly frightened about the cervical surgury, but not so much about the lumbar.
I have had 3 csections and am comparing the lumbar surgury to those.
Any one know the recovery time for the lumbar disc replacement?
Also any advice out there for single moms and preparing my boys to help me when I am home from surgury?
