Feeling overwhelmed and a bit terrified!
This will be my 5th back surgery....you would think I would be use to this by now.
I am using a new surgeon this time, a neurosurgeon. I just think a new set of eyes might be a good thing. Someone who isn't invested in "his work".
I have been in pain since 07, I pray this will do it!
I'm terrified of doing this by myself this time....Life has changed a lot since my fusion and my pending divorce, but I have great friends and the support of my church.
I won't be doing PT right away this time. He just wants me to walk for the first 4-6 weeks. Since I herniated L3-4 at 8 weeks post op following my fusion, I am comfortable with this.
Hoping everyone has a good day!
