I'm going into the hospital on June 29th for a 3 level fusion on L3, L4, and L5. Can anyone direct me to a web page that discusses what happens while you're in the hospital from the day you are admitted to the day you go home? I haven't been "in" a hospital since 1976, as far as spending the night. Actually I was told I may be there for anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks. I would like to know what to expect before hand, like when they put me to sleep, pain after surgery, etc..I've been at a steady level 5 pain for 6 months, and on bad days it gets to a 10+. I have allot of support for when I come home, and my hubby just bought me a rocker recliner with a footstool, for when I'm ready to sit in living room. I'm normally a very independent person, always doing for everyone else, so I know some changes are coming in that as well.
