Hello my friends!
Wow! After a year of waiting and being lost in the WC system I am having the first part of my 360 degree fusion at 7am in the morning! Tomorrow's surgery will be an ALIF with 4-5 day hospital stay and then 7-10 in rehab. Second surgery will be December 17th with the same length of stay for the PLIF.
So far i'm not feeling very nervous per se, really just anxious about being away from my kids. I think all parents can relate. I think i'm about as ready as possible. Bags are packed and already in the car. I suspect once I get to the hospital a bit of anxiety will set in. Others here have suggested asking for something to relax my nerves which I suspect I will.
Well my spiney friends, I will see you on the other side of surgery
I will try to post asap. And, if you all would say a prayer for me, i'd greatly appreciate it! Thank you all for your support and help you have given me along the way!
