Hey everyone tomorrow I am scheduled for L4-L5 L5-S1 fusion surgery. been working hard the last few weeks to get "everything" done but I still feel like I am leaving things undone. Like others here I have been living with numbness, back and leg pain on both sides for the past 10 years. Sometimes it is debilitating most days bearable with meds.
Anyone else have the feeling of dread and excitement at the same time??
The hospital I am going to only does spine surgery so I know I am in good hands and the doctors have done this procedure almost 1000 times. the place is very nice and allows family there with you, and the rooms almost look like hotel rooms. Dr says I should be out on Friday but it depends on how I do.
Thanks everyone for listening.
