Hi everyone. Getting ready for surgery on 1/20/11 for Spinal Stenosis and Spondylolesthesis. Lumbar laminectomy, bone graft and lumbar fusion on L4/L5. I'm just learning all these new terms. I don't really know much about all of this. I do know I've had enough and want my life back. Going on 7 years now. Went thru all the conservative procedures and have been on vicodin for a year now and my brain doesn't seem to work as well as it should.
I'm getting anxious about the surgery though. Any advice to help get thru this will be appreciated.
