For the 24th of February and I feel like there are things I should be doing to prepare but I don't really know what. I need a 2 level fusion and I am only 29.
I am so torn. I have days when my pain is minimal and then days like today that were just terrible. Yesterday I did what you could consider overdoing it and I was fine. Today I did nothing and could barely walk. I just don't understand it. When I go a few days with less pain, I think it's not so bad, maybe I can tolerate it, then I have a day like today and quickly get reminded why I need surgery. Is anyone else who is having or had surgery like this? It just seems like if I had these bad disks, I would be in constant pain.
Anyways, any insights or helpful hints on preparation would be appreciated.
