Finally have mu surgery date for October after my insurance denied my surgery as medically unnecessary, my surgeon talked to the insurance doctor and it was overturned and approved right then as medically necessary. Of course there were so many things they had missed in the reports like my radiculpathy in both legs, and buckling of one leg etc..etc..
Anyway my surgery is Oct. 17th first thing in the morning. I am having a two level Anterior Lumbar Inter-body Spine fusion on L4-L5 and L5-S1. With decompression and of course fixation device.
Anyone else having surgery in October??? If so what are you having done?? I would like to know who is with me next month for surgery and if you are starting a blog or anything. By the way does anyone know of any good personal back pain or back surgery blogs that people have written that are actually patients???
I am now realizing this is only a little over two weeks away. OMG!, Petrified and glad at the same time. Of course I do not want to go through this at all but the pain is so bad I have no choice, so now just want to get it over with.
I have prepared some, I bought satin sheets, I do have a memory foam topper for my bed, I just purchased the grabber and the toilet wiper...lol Now I just need the shower seat and a bed tray for everything. Is there anything I am forgetting????
