After much testing and hem-hawing around, the doctors have decided to do repair surgery on my my failed L5-S1 PLIF. From what I understand, they're going to remove all the old hardware and spacers and put in new stuff for a two or three level fusion. The surgery will be April 5th and 8th. One from the back and one from the front. Is it usual for these these things to be done over two days?
I'm getting a little nervous, and not looking forward to spending all summer in a TLSO brace..but if it gets me better, I'm all for it!
