Hello my friends!
Well, after 11 1/2 months of going back and forth with WC, I am finally authorized and scheduled for surgery. What initially was going to be a one level fusion of the L4/L5 secondary to unstable grade 2 spondy has now potentially progressed to a two level fusion including L5/S1. As it turns out, since it has taken so long to get scheduled for surgery I now have developed a grade 1 spondy at the L5/S1 level. Originally my surgeon had said i'd likely need another fusion in 5-10 years for that level but when I got the authorization, it appears he has gone ahead and gotten it authorized anyway as a possible need (based on wording). I must say after having several sub par doctors it is nice to know that the surgeon I finally chose is going in prepared for the possibility of things being worse than suspected which I really appreciate!
Anyway, I would love to find some buddies to friend up with on this journey. If anyone would like to buddy up for support, I would greatly appreciate it
This is going to be a long journey and I would love to make some friends along the way!
Thanks so much for reading my post. Have a blessed night
