My surgery for double fusion on lower spine will be in about 10 hours and I should be getting ready for bed, but so nervous. I'll be glad when it's over.


  • Wishing you all the best for your surgery and recovery. Take care.

  • I can fully understand the "not able to sleep yet" side of the house! Sounds like a normal reaction to me! Kinda funny, sleep good, go to the hospital, and bing, right back to sleep! Ironic huh? Wishing you well and sending positive thoughts for a wonderful surgery and recovery! Let us know how it goes!!! *HUGZ*

  • I hope that you are managing to sleep now. I)
    When you wake up, This is the day!

    I hope that you find, as I did (and many others), that the anticipation was worse than the actual surgery.

    Praying that your surgery is straight forward and that you wake up with good pain control.

    There are some difficult days ahead of you, but hey, you can do it. This is the route you need to take to get your life back on a straighter path.

    Do let us know, when you can post, how you are.
    We are here to support you through the difficult times. :-)
  • Mindy,

    I am hoping you are now waking up on 'the other side' of your surgery! You might even be in recovery still looking at the time. Just thought I would drop in and let ya know I am still thinking of you. I hope it all went very well! *HUGZ*
