I'm starting to get nervous with surgery just a week away. I ended up in ICU from my neck surgery in March, and had a very difficult time from my fusion on L 3/4 & L 4/5 last August. I tend to bleed allot and it's just the way my body is. My primary doctor & Neurosurgeon with this surgery have been running lots of test on my blood and heart and so far all is well. He's going to be taking all the screws out and checking on the cage. I have osteoporosis and osteoarthritis and have soft bones, so he said he may have to do a little more to make sure I have proper support in there. Aside from that the temperatures have been running in the 100's for 3 weeks now, so it's been hard to get the things ready for my care afterwards. Thank God I have my hubby and daughter that can help. We're just not use to these high temps here in Oklahoma and the humidity so we're just doing the bare necessities every day. Is there anyone else in Oklahoma with an upcoming surgery in August?
