Hi I'm new!
I'm having surgery in July L4-L5 XLIF, L5-S1 TLIF with PSF. I've been livinging with and around my back and leg pain for the last 10 years. So I finally gave in and decided to have surgery, which I know is the only way I can get back to doing the things I love to do (playing golf)etc. I'm scared, really scared. Which I know I shouldn't be, since I've been reading the forum's on here for the last two weeks, and everyone has survived and lived through it, whether the end results are different are not.
I'm still scared and just knowing that there are so many wonderful people out there who have gone through or are going through the same things I am helps. The closer is gets the more anxious I get, so I thought if I could just write and get out that I'm scared it would help, reading all the different posts on here has helped too. No matter how supporative the people around me are, they don't understand. So anyone who has gone through this type of surgery, or is scared or has been scared I would appreciate any kind of feedback.
