Hey, all. I apologize if this is a repeat post. I looked and couldn't find another. It was suggested that I get a thread going for the December bunch.
I'm scheduled for an L5-S1 PLIF on December 3, just a mere three weeks after my 30th birthday (happy birthday to me, right?). I'd love to get in contact with some others who on the same or a similar journey to mine.
As well, are there any others undergoing surgery who have small children? My son will be 6 months at the time of my surgery. I figured it'd be better to be on the road to recovery before he's real mobile than trying to have this procedure done after he's making me chase him. :-)
Looking forward to hearing from you all.
