I am new to this site and am hoping to connect with others. I am having an anterior posterior lumbar fusion next month. This is my first surgery ever and am quite apprehensive. However I am in so much constant discomfort (particularly my legs) that I am looking forward to some level of relief. Anyone in the same boat?


  • Hi
    sorry you are in this circumstance.

    What level is causing your problems? How did they come about?

    At the top of the page where all the thread titles are listed, is one called "post-op must haves." Check it out; there is some helpful info in there.
