Well I am getting so scared. My L5-S1 posterior fusion is Thursday. I had a 2 level fusion in 2007 that was an anterior approach. Complete nightmare recovery. Anything that could go wrong, did. So I am not looking forward to this. At all. Even though it is a different surgery in a way, so scared. All the posts on what to have at home have been such a huge help. And I am definitely prepared. Just not mentally.
DDD 2 level ALIF L3-L5 in 2007. 4/11/13 posterior fusion w/decompression on L5-S1.
