  • Hi I had L4 L5 fusion done on Oct 21st Not sure if are surgeries are the same but mine went well pain was very manageable and I kept the nurse laughing and my fiance was great I went in with a good attitude and
    came out very good .I was on a morphine pump for a day
    and was up walking very quick every 2 hours .and pain was ok i was pleased after all was done just have a good attitude and a sense of humor for the nurses
