I am really scared. The big day is almost here and I am getting more and more nervous every day!
Originally they wanted to remove bone from my hip, but they have decided to do a corpectomy and use the material from the removed vertebrae for the fusion. (C5-6, C6-7). Have any of you had a corpectomy and fusion?
I also wanted to ask - I read on a blog about the doctors waking her up during surgery to do some test (that she said was horrible). Do any of you know what that is about?
I am petrified of being paralyzed during surgery, and could use any words of encouragement!
