Tomorrow, July 2nd my son Jason will be having his fusion.
They (he has 2 surgeons)will be going in from the front and back with 5 small incisions. He will have 4 screws and 2 rods and a plate in the front. The Surgeons say he will be in the hospital for 4 to 6 days.
I'm starting to get nervous but I know he is in good hands.
He was given his brace on Tuesday and surprisingly he said it feels really good to wear it. Poor guy is starving as they have had him on a clear liquid and jello diet.
I will post an update as soon as I can!
