Hey, I just joined my name is Cassandra and I'm 21 (sorry if this post is in the wrong forum)
I have DDD and I'm having a anterior/ posterior spinal fusion soon (Ive already had a laminectomy) Has anyone here had one? I'm terrified I know I need it and that it's what's best but my fear is making me think otherwise, every time I think about I start crying and get some anxiety as well. I have wonderful doctors that are going to be doing the surgery and I trust them completely (my main surgeon is every doctors go-to surgeon) it's just so hard, I've been dealing with this for almost 2 years, I never expected this to be the outcome when I first started having pain. I know the pro and cons, my mom is so freaked she never fails to ask questions. Has anyone had the surgeries I'm having? Did you make the right choice? Where you as scared as I am?
