Can you tell I am excited! I am ready for this pain to take a hike and let me move on with my life.
I know I won't be running marathons or jumping on trampolines any time soon (not that i did before!) I just want to feel that bit of normalcy again.
They are going in from the front and the back. Surgery should take anywhere from 4-6 hours...2-3 days in the hospital and then off to the house I go. 2 months home then back to work.
I truly hope this resolves the pain issue so I can stop trying to explain to everyone why this keeps happening!
As this is my 3rd spinal surgery, I have some idea of what to expect. I have my walker and cane ready for operation. I am getting my brace next week and am prepping the house this weekend. I have wonderful friends who will be bringing us dinners for a while to help out and family to stop by when they can.
I'm not sure about PT or anything like that yet...my dr. hasn't mentioned what he will recommend yet. I just want to be able to walk again without wincing in pain...I have weight to lose, muscles to tone, and a smile to put back on my face
