The better I feel physically and the worse I feel mentally - that really does NOT help with the second guessing and the nights spent thinking that maybe I CAN live with this pain in my legs - what if something goes horribly wrong, etc etc. I saw the Vascular surgeon today and he was very clear about the risks on his part of the surgery but I don't see the NS again before the alif surgery to fuse L5-S1 on the 13th and I don't recall him telling me anything about a plate, he just said a bone graft, but that was what the vascular guy said today so now I am confused which I hadn't really been before. That on top of the nervousness would be turning my hair gray if it wasn't already!
